The weather has been absolutely outstanding. Everything is in bloom. It's a rill treat, I tell ya.
So let's talk about my sister. She's one of my blog readers, so let's go ahead and use her as a Monday Reader post, shall we?
Name: Amy Agnes Bice Larson
Birthdate: March 31, 1976
Cool things her brain has done: BYU Political Science full ride Presidential Scholarship
BYU Law School Truman Scholar (A LARGE scholarship for graduate school given to only a few people in the entire county. Each college elects one student from their school and out of each college, I think 3 or 4 in the nation are chosen)
Also, I think she met the President of the United States about 3 times just while in highschool.
Was chosen to go to Girls State and Girls Nation.
Was on the cover of Newsweek
Worked for Clinton in the Whitehouse
Served a mission in Arcadia, California
Was somehow involved with Hilary writing "It takes a Village" (you know, Hilary Clinton)
Was on Al Gore's "advance team" during his campaign and traveled the country with him and his wife, Tipper--Including driving a car in the motorcade at one point. It was crazy.
Has done research on several published books.
Was SBA president in law school.
And a whole bunch of other crap. Who can remember it all?
Career: Attorney turned stay-at-home mom
Motherhood: 5 yr. old son, Jack (miracle child)
1 yr. old son, Henry (invitro, miracle baby, born 7 weeks early on Christmas Eve in Park City).
Spouse: Chad Larson of Humble, Texas--currently on the business faculty (PHd in accounting) at Washington University in St. Louis.
Attributes: Best sense of humor known to the human race.
Incredible decorator/great taste
Inspired my love for running and has done a number of marathons.
A caring, giving, empathetic, truly loving person who TRULY sees people for who they really are; what their hurts are--What they need. She is always reaching out. (Like the time last week she drove to Lowe's and bought an air conditioning unit for her housekeeper, drove to her housekeeper's tiny house, and installed it in the window). She sees no race, religion, or socio-economic lines drawn. She just loves.
Incredible mother. Her son isn't 5.5 yet and has about a 2nd grade reading level.
Have I mentioned her sense of humor? It's too good to be true.
Incredible public speaker.
Lover of books.
Easy-going but driven.
Why she reads my blog: I would guess obligation and boredom. And she loves Lucy. She was honestly my arms and legs during those weeks of agony.
Past history with me: Fights over clothes that could go down in American History books. One such fight led to her kicking a hole in the wall with her bare foot.
Is her life perfect? No. Has she accomplished a lot? Yes. Does she have any struggles? Yes. We all do. Does she deal with them with a good attitude? Yes. Has she put up with Peter with grace and patience this week? Yes.
In summary, the best sister I've ever had! I can't wait to show you the quilt we've been working on.
