Twenty Five years ago my life was transformed.

 I became a sister.

It's an amazing  bond, sisterhood. To share a childhood with one other person, and have that person be your best friend, is a great gift. Of course we weren't always best friends. I used to pray to God to make my sister fat, because she was a perpetually skinny kid and I didn't want my guy friends to choose her over me. Jealousy is a common thing among sisters as close as we were.

And she was always better behaved, even though I am somehow the one with the approval addiction.

But we enjoyed/ tolerated every sport, every hobby, every instrument, vacation, family get-together with each other. Even to this day we remain so close - she is one of the few people who know me best and love me most. I am so grateful for her!

Happy Birthday, Kiddo!
