She's a Teenager!

Today is my younger sister Corrie's birthday. And as you guessed from the title she is turning 13. I simply cannot believe that she is actually a teenager. That makes three of us. :)

Corrie is one of my best friends. I love the girl to death.

Some unique little quirks about Corrie are:
She is an avid pack rat, but she keeps it all organized.
She is thorough. You can always depend on Corrie to have the job done complete and to your liking.
She loves audio books and listens to radio theatre dramas all the time!
Some things she collects are dolls, hats, purses, miniature things and the like.
She likes to get up at ungodly hours even though sometimes she hasn't had much sleep.

She looks up to me. I find this a little un-nerving sometimes. She is looking up to me as an example. She told me not too long ago that she watches us older girls make mistakes and gleans from them what she can. I find that quite remarkable.

She is a servant. She will take the initiative when others just sit back and do nothing.

She absolutely loves children and claims that she wants to have twenty of her own. You go girl! :)

Another aspect of Corrie is her amazing character. She is more mature than most 13-year-old girls that I know. The key to Corrie's awesome character is the fact that she spends time with God. She is seeking Him day by day. For a girl of 13, that is amazing.

Happy Birthday, Corrie!!! I love you bunches!!! :)


  1. Happy Birthday, Corrie! May the Lord bless you today and always :)

  2. I thought the same way when Jansen was becoming a teenager! He doesn't even look it!
