Sister – a star

By littlesweetfish No comments

My sister was not only bright but also was good at teaching since she was little. She’d come home from school and teach me what she learned at school. I could read and write, make additions, and subtractions way before I started school four years after my sister. She applied praise as a tool to motivate me. When I was about four years old, I drew a picture of a blue bird flying over small houses, which image came solely out of my imagination. My sister was impressed and told adults around us how talented I was to have drawn a picture without looking at the object and have brought the bird in perspective to the houses below. I was elated by her praise and craved for more of her approval. She always brought back new knowledge, challenges, and ideas. I looked up to her as a star. And it was my joy to forever trying to catch up on her.
