When we were small, we argued like all children do. I always looked up to her, though. I wanted to be like her, go where she went, do everything she did. I was the annonying younger sister. After we got through the teenage years and started to make lives of our own, we became very close and have remained so until this day. I know it shall be so for as long as we live.
We have shared so many good things and good times together. There also have been the sad times as well, but we survived them together.
I cannot imagine life without her. She is strong, smart, beautiful, kind, tender-hearted and tenacious! If she loves someone she'll walk through fire for them. She would do anything within her power for me, and I for her.
For all these reasons I want to wish her the happiest birthday ever. And I want her to know that I love her very, very much!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SISSY!!
