Happy Birthday Shae

Today is my oldest sisters birthday and I felt impressed to write my feelings down about her.  I will be honest when I was growing up there where times it was really, really tough. Times when she wanted to pull my hair out and I was a main target, because I had the longest hair. Times when I didn't understand why she was throwing a tantrum and had to be patience as she threw things, kicked me and even lock me outside the house. But that being said she is an angel and always has been for me. She is the valiant spirit that said, 'Yes I will go to earth and have those limitations, but I will be happy through it. I will be a light to others. '

And she is just that. Through out my whole life she had been an example of love. She's taught me how to love the neglected, the downhearted and the outcast. When I am with her she quickly teaches me what really is important in life. Shae's life has been anything but perfect but through her setbacks, and her limitations she finds joy in the sweetest and simplest things.

I am grateful to have a perfect example to look up to, and I am grateful for her guidance as an older sister that has made my life that much sweeter.

I've posted this video before, but I wanted to post it again because its a memory that I will always look back on and cherish.

Happy 34th Birthday, Shae! Hugs!!! Shelby, I love this video and everytime I watch it (since the 1st time you ever posted it) my smile gets bigger and bigger (if that's possible). It is heart warming to see... and your in-laws are such caring and giving people. :) Have a nice day! Please give Daxton, Tatye & Benson an extra hug today from someone in NJ. :)

Thanks Shelb. We are blessed as she has taught each of us as family members. We would not be the same without her. We are better for her life.

I've shared my comments before about your sister. What a beautiful person she is. Such an inspiration, this tribute made me smile, I loved the dancing, but most of all it showed how much she enjoyed it. And what a beautiful family she has. Thank you
