30DT: Day Nine

Day Nine:

Today, I'm grateful for my SIL Rachel! (Lucky people with birthdays in November.)

Reasons why I'm grateful for Rachel:

R - Real. She is the real deal. Always genuine, gorgeous to the skin, kind to the core. Determined to do her best and be her best.

A - Animated. She's as much fun as Looney Tunes, without the risk of an anvil falling on your head. :)

C - Confident. She's not afraid to ask for what she wants -- and usually gets it!

H - Heartwarming. That may sound cheesy, but she's got a knack for making people feel special, at ease, and wanted. I call that heartwarming.

E - Energetic! She's the one with ideas for games and shenanigans. She's up late giggling with the girls. She's got questions and conversation starters and creative ways to use paper plates to entertain her niece and nephew.

L - Loving and lovely. I couldn't choose between these two. Rachel adores my brother James, and I love her for that. She is loving and kind to her whole family, near and far.

Rachel -- love you!
