my sister, melissa, is one of the kindest most gracious people i know.
she gives everything she's got to being an amazing teacher, and then finds a little more to give and comes home each night to be the most loving and caring mother to her two daughters.
she's always there to support her friends and family - not only answering my random texts about how to (insert anything child related here) any day of the week, but making tutus and costumes and presents and listening to us all complain with a sympathetic ear.
melissa works so hard all the time, i decided to buy her a round trip ticket to bring the girls out to new jersey for a week this summer. we're going to have the most amazing time, and i can't wait to have them all here together.
happy birthday melissa.
you truly are an inspiration.
