Today my little sister is 53. I had to check that! It is her birthday, and once again, I wanted to tell you how incredibly blessed I am to have this amazing woman as my sister. It wasn't always a blessing, let me add. She was a nightmare when I was small. Irritating. She got me into trouble. She was naturally brilliant. An over-achiever. A blight on my landscape. Well, the landscape of a 12 year old's life.
My mother used to say....you will be glad to have a sister when you are older. Hmmmmm. I never believed her at all. (Someone called Oscar is ringing me on skype. Repeatedly. Who the ******* is Oscar????) But she was right, as mothers generally are.
I am glad.
She is a blessing.
She is possibly the one person in the world who knows me best of all.
She is the hardest worker in the universe.
She has a heart as big as an ocean.
She adores her husband.
She adores her family.
Everyone loves her.
I love her.
She is special.
Happy Birthday, Marge!
