I had the most perfect birthday with greetings from so many facebook friends and family that I lost count. I got several poems written to me as well. My absolute favorite was written by my sister Elaine who has been rhyming with me since our days of Dr. Seuss. We just never stopped, we have carried on conversations in rhyme ever since. Don’t get us started!
This year she wrote a tribute to me in verse. I just had to share this on my blog for posterity’s sake.
When you were born
Such a LONG time ago
I was just out of diapers
(atleast I think so…)
I had a great big sister
And a cool brother too
But God had decided
That I needed YOU.
I’ve always been lucky
Blessed in so many ways
And you entered– the jackpot
Who would brighten my days.
You are sweet and you’re subtle
You are strong and you’re wise.
And your heart, well it’s huge—
An incredible size.
I hope that your day is as special
As your smile is so sweet.
And you know that I miss you
from my head to my feet.
Happy Birthday, Little Sister!!!
I also received a beautiful card from my oldest daughter.
