Show Us Your Singles

Kelly’s Korner is hosting a Show Us Your Singles carnival and when my cousin, who by the way is also named Kelly, emailed me to suggest I participate by writing about my sister Heather, I just couldn’t pass it up.

So how does the carnival work?  You write a post about a single friend or family member and then everyone links up back at Kelly’s.  People start match-making and apparently, sometimes, it works!  A few people have started dating seriously from this process and one couple even got married!  Since Heather is into online dating recently I figured this couldn’t hurt.

But how in the world do I tell you all the great stuff from 30 years of sisterhood?

How can you start to capture all the times she’s made you laugh?


Or gone to a concert with you?


Or hugged your kids because she loves all babies so much?


Or celebrated with you?


How in the world do you describe just how much she loves animals?




Maybe it’d be a good time to tell that story how she literally swam through a lake to save a drowning dog’s life?

How can I describe how she’s been by my side through everything, even little things like meeting Spongebob.


Should I tell you how much she loves music and movies and TV or how much she loves pens and post-it notes?  Or just how much she has a heart for God and what He has in store for her mate?

Or were you looking for “the stats” like

  • She’s 30
  • 5’4” (I think?)
  • Resident of Fort Mill, SC
  • Graduate of a 2 year school with graphic design
  • Works with my mom at her custom blinds business
  • Owns her own house and car

Or maybe I should just tell you how beautiful she is inside and out



because she is.  And how any guy would be a LUCKY. GUY. to get her.

Yeah, ok, so maybe she doesn’t get a date out of this post but I sure hope she gets just how great I think she is.  I don’t say it a lot.

But I mean it a lot.

Love you, sissy.

Oh and cute, single men, well-meaning mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins and friends, leave a comment if you have a good match for her!

    I have to admit I’ve now read this several times…if I was pmsing I’d be boo-hooing my eyes out. This is really sweet. One correction though…it was a pond I saved that dog from, not a lake. lol.

  4. Amy, great post. I miss reading Heather’s blog. She is adorable.
