Happy Birthday to my little sister! As kids, our four-year age gap made us enemies most of the time. She was annoying, bossy, and (seemed to) get away with things I didn’t. Her large brown eyes hid a multitude of sins as everyone seemed to melt when they saw them. I, on the other hand, was loud and opinionated and got into trouble more than she did.
Once we were both out of college, the age gap started to close and we became best friends. She has a wicked sense of humor, an amazing way with her children and is a great cook. She’s still bossy, but her children seem to bear the brunt of that. I’m glad she’s my sister, and most importantly, my best friend.
Happy Birthday Ralph! (yes, that’s what I call her and have almost since the day she was born)
