Here's to my Sistah...

Years ago, my sister and I declared that August 10th is "sister's day". We decided that we needed a day to celebrate each other. Often one of us forgets the holday and feels horrible about it, but we always find a way to aknowledge each other. That day is here. So here's to my sister...

She's an amazing person because she:

  • Has an incredible ability to make you laugh. She can take any situation and find something knee-slapping funny in it. Even if she's making fun of herself. I can't have a conversation with her without laughing....and I love that!
  • Has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. She gives of herself not only with her husband and three children, but with shut-ins at her church, her friends, and her extended family.
  • Can whip up a tasty meal in no-time for a crowd without any stress or worry.
  • Is a stay-at-home mom who is always on the run doing fun and educational things with her kids.
  • Keeps up her spiritual life through church groups and Bible studies.
  • Will dance with her kids in the living room just for fun.
  • Gave me and our mom a foot massage and pedicure on Mother's Day to show us she loves us (and it felt wonderful!)
  • Teaches Sunday school at church and an "Art from the Masters" class at her son's elementary school.

She's just really great and I miss her the most of anything or anyone in California. I love her so much!

By the way, I must say that I'm so thankful for the reasonable prices of the telephone and internet, which makes communication so much easier and quicker than the snail mail and prices of yesteryear.
