Title: Dear Joe
Instagram’s account: @xuanxuan23
People believe that the heroes are one in many thousands, but I want to say that a sister like you (her) is always one in a lifetime. However, sister always helps you in understanding the world better and also appreciates it more than anyone else. I know it better as that’s how it have been for the past 24 years.
Today is a special day, a day that filled with blessing and love. 24 years ago, I was waiting patiently outside the ward for my mom and going-to-be baby sister to come out. I don’t actually remember how it was but the moment I saw her, I knew she was someone special that I love – she is my sister, Joe.
She is a gift from my parent that never could be replaced. Joe will be always my baby sister who is always cheering me up, loving me unconditionally whatever I am. I would want to give her all my blessing and ask for her forgiven in all the ridiculous that we fight, we joke, we argue for. I will always love you!
Happy Birthday, baby sister!
