I would just like to first start off by saying I have been slowly working on this post since Thursday and just when I was about to post it I somehow deleted it. I am so mad at myself right now.
I am always amazed at how quickly time passes! Like I am starting to wonder if I will always be amazed/in shock! It seems like just yesterday we were all taking place in "Madison's Mad Adventure" to celebrate little Madison's birthday. I have a t-shirt to prove that it's a real thing in case you were wondering! Oh how fun it would be to go back to those days!
I am always so impressed with you. In many ways you have had to grow up faster than most of us, but instead of seeing that as a negative you have been so positive and so strong. Actually one of the strongest people I know!!! In fact, I have known about this strength since we were little. I can remember playing school with you and me being the teacher since I was older, but between your strong personality and sass, we all know you ran our classroom. I can think back to being your age and how hard that time is. I so admire you for staying true to who you are. I so appreciate you letting me be your big brother all these years. I wouldn't trade them for anything. All the trips, razorback games, and times together are priceless. I so wish I could go back and have a couple more days at SHS only because I would love to take you to school just one more time.
If you think about it, Mad, being a part of your life has been such a fun adventure. From dancing at Disney World to floating across the pageant stage I have always admired how well you use the gifts that God gave you. Please don't ever stop doing that. It makes me and many others who love and care about you SO proud. From the Nevis pools to the golf cart dates, you have always been my partner in crime. I cannot wait to support you in whatever you decide to do next. All I know is that no matter what you do, you will always have that special and unique glow to you. I love you so much!!
I am sorry this is coming a little late. but I figure I wanted to drag it out because we all know I could celebrate you for days. ;)
I hope you had the best birthday, sis!! I cannot wait to give you a big hug! Now, take care of Mills and keep yourselves out of trouble!! I will see you so soon. Ahhh you make me so proud! Happy (late) Birthday!!!

Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
