Instructions For Living a Life

Happy 32nd birthday to my littlest blonde sister E.  You live a life I admire. You feel.  You laugh. You inspire. You pay attention. You give. 

I was 4 when you were born and I recall a time not so long after that that I realized I liked you... You talked an awful lot as a little person and you were always willing to play pretend games with barbies and GI Joes... to build forts with blankets all over the living room... and to play in the snow for hours on end.

Today I celebrate the day that you were born, 32 years ago.
Today I am honored not only to call you my sister, but my friend.
I love you.

"Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it."
