This is #2.

She's my other roommate.

She is also my sister.

Some definitions of a sister are; a female friend or protector regarded as a sister, a female fellow member, as of a church, and a woman who supports, promotes, or participates in feminism.

I would say she fits the bill for all of that.

Now, the first things I think of when I think of #2 are grace, tenderness, and beauty. She's one of the most feminine women I know. She carries herself with such a tender love. She brings out my most womanly qualities.

I always tell #2 that she has a huge heart. She does! She's so loving and nurturing. But even with all this grace and gentleness and care, she's one of the strongest women I've ever met. Even in her weakest moments. And like the definition states, she's a protector.

As my sister, her sheltering nature kicks in whenever she sees that I've been hurt. And she's like that for all of her sisters.

There is one thing that hurts my heart about #2, though. And that would be that she is fully, completely, and absolutely unaware of the beauty that she possesses. I mean, no lie. She doesn't have a clue. She's not dense either so that's not an excuse... It's just humility. But really, her humility amplifies her beauty that much more! This one day we were at daily mass. I like to sit in the front row because I can't concentrate any place else. While I was praying, I looked up just in time to see #2 going up to receive the Body and Blood of Christ and can I just tell you how breathtakingly beautiful she was? I know how wrapped up her heart is in God's hands. She's His girl. She is completely His. I've seen her faith and I've seen her love for her Father. And to see her up there with was just indescribable.

#2 is a true representation of godly femininity. I've learned and am still learning from her heart. I am so blessed to be so close to her much less know her! I look forward to our sisterhood strengthening. And I look forward to watching her grow even more into the marvelously wonderful woman she was born to be.
