Happy 20th Birthday Anna!
I am sure that most of you were thinking "Wow, Anna is wishing herself a happy birthday, and you were probably not that surprised. Because that's the Anna we know, and love! But I have good news... she is becoming more Christ-like, and learning to not talk herself up to high. So this is actually Esther reporting. *Smile* Okay... now on a more serious note!
Where does one begin when trying to describe what Anna means to them? This is not an easy task! Anna is my best friend, my favorite sister, my inspiration, my encourager, and my biggest fan! She is one of the few people who can make me laugh at any given moment! She is a great example of someone who gives God everything in every situation! When she went to VA for 2 months... it was hard for me to survive! I did not have my best friend there to tell me what to do, or that I was doing just fine. I am not a skilled writer like Anna, so it is hard for me to put into words how much you mean to me!
I love you so much Anna!
(I tried to pick pictures that I think capture MY Anna! I love this one it is so her!)
When people ask me how I can survive with 7 brothers? I always tell them I love having that many brothers! I could not imagine my life without each one. But I think that the reason I can survive with so many brothers, and not hate them is because there is Anna. We have each other. I have MY Anna!

"I say to myself, the Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him. The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him."
