Music Monday - #9 Taylor Swift's Fifteen
Last week I did a post on a friend of mine that had not been a good friend. This week I want to do a post about a friend of mine that has gone above and beyond the calls of friendship.
I met Heather online nearly three and a half years ago, and she's been as true a big sister as any blood related one ever was. She led me to Christ, and has not since guiding me since. She makes me read my bible when she knows I need to; comforted me when I was crying because i was growing up and everything was changing; and has never, ever treated me like I'm just a little girl, or told me I was too little, or something was too hard for me to do.
When I was writing for fame she never told me to stop or that I couldn't do it - she just guided me in the right direction and praised me when I finally gave up that silly wish. When I wanted to be a musician despite the fact that I can't play a single instrument, she never told me it was too hard, she just encouraged me to work at it. And now that I want to open my own fashion boutique, she reads my blog everyday, lets me show her all the pictures I take, and all around encourages as much as is humanly possible. And she never, ever left me despite how much I deserved it.
So that's why I love this song by Taylor Swift - because it sounds like me. I was boy crazy when I was fifteen, and I thought I knew who I was but I didn't. But someone told me they loved me when I was fifteen, but unlike Taylor it wasn't a boy - it my sister. And unlike Taylor, that person still tells me they love me everyday - and I know she always will. <3
