Happy Birthday to My Big Little Sister
I have an amazing sister and it's her birthday today! I'll never forget being 10 years old and an oldest sister to three younger brothers. I was beyond thrilled to hear that I FINALLY had a sister. I was married by the time she was 10 and it seemed that, even though I loved her dearly, our lives became separate. Luckily that was not the case. She spent summers and other vacations at our house in Nevada and eventually came to live with us. She lived with us for three years before she got married and settled right here in town! I never thought we would have kids at the same time but, as luck would have it, we have two each that are about the same age. I have so many memories with her and we have so much fun together. She is so great and I don't know what I would do without her. I am "seriously so blessed" to have her in my life. Happy Birthday Natalie!
