a graduation and a letter.

Dear little brother,

you just graduated from high school. did you ask my permission? i'm not sure i'm ok with it. nevertheless, you are handsome, smart, charismatic and carry an unnatural amount of confidence for a 17 year old boy. i'm so proud of you for making good decisions and standing up for what you believe in. you've always been so tender hearted- ever since you were a little boy. i love that you still befriend the friendless and take care of your sisters. you just about melted my heart when you brought me up ice water to bed every night, without complaint, because i was too nauseas to walk downstairs to get it myself. i've always treasured our relationship. i love the memories i have with you spraying brush and gathering cattle. you're a genuinely good human being zane alma veater and i'm so proud to have you for a little brother. this little nugget inside of me is so fortunate to have you for an uncle zane. byu is lucky to have you too...just don't go breaking too many hearts out there in provo ok? you are a handsome little devil.

love, your favorite oldest sister
