I smile as I type this because today is the day of my sister’s birth.
My beautiful sister.
My sister who would do anything for us; for her nieces.
My sister who taught me so many things; things like style and skincare (and so much more.)
My sister who I wanted to be, as a little girl.
My sister who was the first person to listen to me.
My sister who has the uncanny ability to make a child feel that they are the most important person in the world; she listens when they speak.
My sister who has paved the way for us.
My sister who has raised two beautiful children.
My sister who can rock overalls and hats like no other.
My sister who is thoughtful and kind.
Sister, happy, happy birthday to you. I am so glad you were born.
I love you so very much.
