As I consider this week’s celebration of my sister’s birthday, I am filled with gratitude for who she is for me and who she has always been for our family. Recently, with Mom’s illness, she didn’t hesitate to travel to be a support to Mom and Dad and to send all of us an evening update. For this, and for all of the love and affection she has shown us over the years, I want to express my love. Thank you, for all of the drives from airports and trains and your generosity in every aspect of your life. I am wishing you much encouragement in your hectic week and know that you are always in my heart. I’ve saved every little piece of writing or drawing…every photograph that has been popped into the mail over the years…and so now, I pass a few of these tidbits back to you.
