Happy Birthday, SIS
This card is for my "baby" sister, the youngest of the three musketeers. A multi-faceted woman, who follows her dreams and has experienced far more life experiences than either of my middle sister or myself. As is in the family birth cycle, I am number one, the expected leader, and strength puller. My middle sister is just that,
the middle child, who seems to struggle for her identity, and then there is the baby,
who challenged the rules and made her own path, and is still doing so now. She and her husband love to explore back roads, nooks and crannies, just because. She has lived in every style of "home", searching for the right place and enjoying them all.
They have had multiple home businesses that are always successful, and she now waits
for the letter that will tell her that her novel is going to be published. This card is for you sis, with all the love tucked inside. Sometimes I wonder whether you have found your homestead, but then I am also envious of your travels to find it.
My path has been the straight and narrow, the steadfast one, that parents expect of their firstborn, but here's to you kid, for following your dreams and letting some of
those rules fall by the wayside, to fill your life with adventure. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, you find the pleasure in everything you do.
