Challenge: A photo that makes you smile.

This is not good.

These two pictures together make me smile. They remind me that even in the absence of so much, there is always someone who has always loved me, and will always care about my well being. Even when she was just a little girl herself, she took care of me the best she knew how. When I was hurting silently, she spoke on my behalf. When I was losing my way, she stretched across a country to remind me who I am. Now, as an adult, she shows me that despite my past, despite history, there is nothing good that I will be denied, my success is dependent on me.

I love her much, my sister, my friend, Sara. These pics just say it all.
