He usually said this when attempting to settle one of our fights in which I may have allegedly hit you over the head with the rake or when I supposedly shoveled dog poop into your leaf pile and made you pick it up with your bare hands.
As I remember it, these things may or may not have happened because you were bugging the shit out of me.
Dad would also say “Your friends will come and go, but your family will be there forever.”
He was right… You, Debbie and Jeff are some of my biggest blessings.
And now…here we are. You are [cough] 40, and I’m still trying to find ways to level the playing field. Knowing full well, this will never happen. You are nothing short of incredible, and they just don’t come better than you.
You are one of my most prized treasures, and you deserve all the blessings in the world.
Today, and every day, I celebrate you. Happy 40th Birthday to my sister, my best friend.
I love you sissy.
