Happy Birthday Sister!

My sister Cindy celebrated a milestone birthday on Friday.   


Cindy is two years younger me.   Growing up we shared a room and a bed before we got bunk beds.   I really hated it when she peed the bed.    It was not a fun way to wake up.    I’m glad she outgrew that!   

As we got older, we shared clothes, sometimes without asking.   Then we fought.   Hair pulling, pinching, hitting, yelling and crying.    I’m glad we’re over that too.

As adults, we took a car trip to Alaska,  just Cindy and I and a tent. There was no peeing the bed, no hair pulling, no hitting, no yelling and no crying.     I’m older but Cindy is more adventuresome.

We don’t spend much time together these days as she has a busy life thousands of miles away with a husband, four kids, a house and job.

We did get to celebrate this birthday together.   I’ve got pictures and stories from this weekend that I’ll be sharing later this week.

For now…


Happy Birthday Cindy!
