To My Sis' By the Sea

 H A P P Y      B I R T H D A Y !

I am sorry for those of you out in blog-land who do not know my sister, Dorothy.  If you did, you'd have a friend for life.  She'd save the world, if she could, and she's trying, one kid at a time.  She's sure saved me by listening, mothering my children when I needed her to, being on my side (even when I don't deserve it), and earning daughter of the decade, trying to KEEP UP with our parents when I live so far away.

So, I'm sorry for you all, but so happy for me and mine that I have a sister like her.  Happy Birthday, my sister, my friend.  I wish we could be together to have a margarita at Ninfa's (or El Bosque, more like).  I love you.

As you can see, I have a pretty fine sister myself! You're my best friend, my savior and I love you very much!

Thank you for the birthday wishes! I'm not sure I will be able to get out the front door, however. =P
