Happy Birthday to a Wonderful Sister

This is a birthday note about my sister Sherry. This is about someone who never gets to hear, nearly enough, what a wonderful person she is. She's a person who has been thanked by my heart for a hundred things, but hardly ever... by my words. And she is an amazing woman who has always been appreciated so enormously, but for reasons that have only been known to me!

So, Sherry, I thought it might be time to do something about that...

I am sorry that I don't tell you more often how much you mean -- and how much you have always meant -- to me.

We have a closeness that doesn't need to be measured in miles. Ours is the warm and sharing kind that has always been measured in memories made, reassurance given, and the nicest kind of smiles anyone could ask for. You are a big part of my life, and you always will be. You are so good to Autumn, she adores you and loves you. I'm glad we have someone with such a giving heart as you.

And I don't know what I did to deserve such a great sister, but whatever it was... I hope you know that I treasure you so much, and I'm eternally grateful that we are "family". Happy Birthday Sherry! I love you!

Sherry's love is special
in oh so many ways
Now miles stretch between us
and minutes turn to days.
We've shared so much as children
the tears, the joys, the pain
A lifetime spent together
those memories remain.
In times gone by we've pondered
the paths our lives have taken
Knowing that in spite of this
our love unshaken.
My sister's love is special
in ways that are unspoken
Still that binding force exists
our love unbroken.
Well looks like one more year has passed by.

Oh how marvelous; oh wonderful; this my name shall be to thee.

I'm not even sure if those are the words; howver, it is so awesome to see that my big brother sent me this wonderful birthday wish. It's so sad that's it's taken me a month to actually read it.

Thank you, darling brother!!! What a wonderful gift you are.
