(On my birthday, with baby Debra)
Today is my sister Debra's birthday! I'm told that I begged my parents for a sister, and they delivered (ha ha) when I was five years old. At first I was thrilled. But as I got older, the age gap became an issue, and I mainly saw her as a little person who followed me around and terrorized me (she was always the dominant sister even from toddlerhood!). When she was in high school, things shifted again, and now that we're both adults, she is my best friend. I'm so thankful that she'll always be with me throughout my life. Happy birthday hermana!!!
