40-something

March 20, 2008 at 12:14 pm | Posted in Birthdays | 1 Comment

Today is not only the first day of Spring, it is the day you were born.  I wish I could remember more about us growing up but honestly, those memories have been replaced with adult memories which are just as fun and amazing.  I always wanted to be like you (except in the days of really bad “mom” hair – which I decided NOT to post on here today and took a softer, more conservative approach to my annual birthday picture.  Although I will just ask you to take a moment and observe the earrings you sported on your wedding day).

You’ve always been my friend and my surrogate mother when I was too scared or ashamed to turn to Mom.  You’re always there to share advice, or assvice, depending on the circumstances.  I’d trust you with my life and more importantly my children.  You are one of my best friends and deepest confidants. 

Happy Birthday!!

  1. What’s wrong with the earrings??!! Seriously! I believe you helped pick them out.

    You have no idea what it means to me to know that our relationship has come to be defined as friends. You, too, are someone that I can call my best friend – I love that. Even though you are my “little” sister, I too strive to be like you in many ways. I guess we just bring out the best in each other and keep the worst just between us.

    I love you – and thanks for not posting, what I am sure is, a terrible picture of me. That is a true gift!
