Alix, my sister. We've grown up together, you've known me since I didn't know anything. Through all the hair colors, hair cuts, the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, the sad, the troubles, the babysitters, the hard times, the fun times, the laughter, the tears, the everything. You've been there. You're my other half. I look up to you more than anyone in the world, and you will never know how much I love you but I try to tell you

Age is a funny thing. The things you learn, the ways you grow. So many things can happen to one person in a lifetime, it's ridiculous. No matter how old you get, you will always be the same person you were 50 years ago, but you could have changed so much throughout that time that you feel like someone else. Growing physically and mentally and emotionally. Sometimes it makes you sad to look back at the person you used to be or that someone else used to be because you feel like they're just gone. Even though they could be sitting right next to you or they are you. Sometimes it makes you happy because you've grown into a better person, or closer to the person you want to be. But you are always you. It's funny how you can go without seeing an infant for 5 years and now they're 5 years old and talking and walking, and they have learned more than you can imagine, and they even look completely different. But you can go 5 years without seeing an adult, and they have the same haircut, same hair color, same personality, and "They haven't changed a bit!". It seems that the older you get, the slower you grow, the less you learn, and the less you change. Sometimes you look back at something you did 20 years ago and think "How could I have ever done that? I would never do that now, I would never say that now... " But the same person thinking that, is the same person who did that 20 years ago. Age is a crazy thing, the things you can learn in on lifetime, all the things you can do in one lifetime, and all the people that one person can be in one lifetime really get's you thinking about who you are today, and where you've been.
