Dramatic {Sunday Snapshot}

{Please check out our 500 Good Wishes Puzzle and help us get a little closer to Jack!  Only 496 pieces left!}

For my new photography class, each week I am given a theme to interpret as I see fit.  This week's theme was dramatic.  I sat thinking of dramatic for a while and then decided to flip to it in the dictionary.  

And one definition in particular really caught my attention:

Highly effective or striking.

And immediately, my little sister came to mind.  

You see, she is highly effective in everything she does.  She keeps her home in Pottery-Barn-Magazine worthy-order, cooks to the 9s, exercises routinely, and still manages to make time for her dog, family and friends, all while earning her Doctor of Pharmacy degree. When she graduates {with honors, I'm sure} this May, she will have the ability to work directly with other medical doctors to help prescribe life-saving medications.  She does all this while traveling on different mission trips all around the globe telling others of the Eternal Life-Saving powers of Jesus Christ. 
And striking is her middle name.  Have you ever met someone this strikingly smart, kind, and beautiful?  And, I don't know that I've ever met someone who invests so much of themselves in their friends.  Melissa is genuinely compassionate and cares for others and goes out of her way to make them feel strikingly special about themselves.  
She may all the time most the time sometimes drive me crazy, but there's no one else I'd rather call my little sister.

Love you Skrimpie!
