Just when you believe that you're close is when you both will discover that you are very different. Over the years it was easy because she admired you and you could do or say nothing wrong. Well...she outgrew those times, and now she is on her own.
Your little sister will someday be the next Quinceañera in your family, but for now, she is bedazzled in the latest mini-me gowns. She likes to wear a gown just like her sister on the "BIG" day. She captures the attention of everyone and her smile just lights up the room. She is la futura princesa, and she is not afraid to strike a pose when she hears OMG she is too cute! Your younger sister can steal the party if you let her with her cute dimples, grandiose smiles, and batting eyelashes, as she commands the attention from the room.
She wears the gown well, and she will show you with a twirl or two, how to make a grand entrance. Your little sister is merely practicing her arrival of the days when she embarks on her right of passage on her Quinceañera. She will set a stage that will be remembered, and she learned this all from you as she peeked in your doorway as you were prancing around. The time will come when your little sister has hit that mile mark, and you can see all that she is and has accomplished, is due to your attitude and love for her. A Quinceañera is always in the making, and the legend does not end there. Influence great compassion, a humble attitude, and an abundance of love, so that your sister will follow suit. She will continue to look up to you even if you both differ dramatically.
