Never Give Up

My younger sister has been by my side from high school basketball practice to cramming for finals in college and at my wedding as my maid of honor. She has always been the silent one while I was the adventurous one. She helped me through a very difficult time with humility and grace.

About a year ago her fiancé called off their engagement. Since then she has struggled to find herself and her place in this world. A week ago she quit her job so that she could travel the world, participate in some local mission work, and visit family and friends.

I gave her the 'Courage' key that I had received from a friend before my first child was born. I pray that my sister has the strength, courage, and determination to figure out her calling and never give up. I'm here for you sister!
