Happy 40th Birthday to My Big Sister

My first memory involves you.

I was being pushed in a yellow stroller

Every time it flipped over you’d get me back up;

Laugh and push some more.

I had no idea where I was going but I felt safe.

I knew you were there. 

When I was afraid of the dark

I spent endless nights kicking you in your head.

And looking back I never even realized I had my own bed

For that and much more I am so grateful.

I thank you for:

Being my big sister,

 pushing me,

 getting me back up,

 making me feel safe

or  just plain sharing what’s yours.

It’s GREAT to have a sister like you

 Even BETTER to have you as my friend.
