how can it be that my sister turned 51 years old today? Unbelievable. Especially since I can recall her so clearly when she was 12. OMG! Does that mean I am growing older too?????

I wish I could have shared her day and helped her celebrate. I sent her love from afar though. But eating birthday cake by yourself, particularly when it’s not your own birthday, is sort of lame.

She tells me that absence makes the heart grow fonder and that she feels closer to me since I moved away. I think that’s a good thing (?)…
