Happy 55th Birthday Vikke

IMG_3732

My sister Vikke is tough as nails and as compassionate as Mother Teresa. She will fight for you if she believes in your cause and she sticks up for the weak and cares for the elderly. I have so many noteworthy stories to share today about Vikke but I will keep it to one. It’s about her determination and stamina.

When Vikke was studying for her real estate license we spent quite a bit of time together. We laughed a lot while studying but Vikke was nervous that she wouldn’t be able to pass the difficult test. Vikke passed the test because of her hard work and determination to never give up. It didn’t take long before Vikke became a successful realtor. She loved her new career and was learning a lot but all of a sudden life happened. Vikke was faced with making a very important decision whether to stay in a career she loved and was getting very good at or step up and take care of her grandchildren that she absolutely adored but were a lot work because they were so young. We all know the path Vikke chose and the sacrafices that both Vikke and Bob have made for their grandchildren but we also know the impact she has made on their young lives.
