My Sister

I have the best sister in the world.  I know a lot of people think they have the best sister in the world, but they're wrong.  Here are but some of the reasons why my sister is better than yours.

*She is older than me.  Old enough that when I was born it was like she had a real doll to play with, and play with me she did.  She looked after me a lot when I was little.

*She saved her pocket money and used it to buy me Strawberry Freddo Frogs.

*When she moved out of home, even though things were really strained with our parents, she made the effort to come and get me and take me to her house for weekends. 

*She let me wear a pretty dress and be a junior bridesmaid at her wedding.

*She didn't get too mad when I spilt an entire can of lemonade on my pretty dress just before we had the wedding photos taken.

*She can do amazing things with hair.

*She used to let me cook things in her kitchen.

*She has the best stocked baking kitchen.  With all the right sorts of sugar and lots of different sized baking trays and things.

*She cooks me Meatloaf.  And sometimes meringues.

*She has entrusted me with the care of her children.  More times than I can count.

*She introduced me to Lolly Gobble Bliss Bombs

Accept no imitations!

*Even though she didn't like him nobody liked him, she supported the fact that I chose to live with a fucktard for almost four years.

*She supported me again when I chose to leave said fucktard.

*She always seems to know when I need reassurance about things.

*She helped me more than words can say when PTSD engulfed my life the first time and she is doing the same this time around.

*She is the first person I call when things go bad, and the very first person I call when things are great.

*She is beautiful. Despite the fact that she lets me cut her fringe with kitchen scissors.

*She loves me unconditionally.

*She gave Chyken permission to ask me to marry him.

*She pretended to act surprised when I told her I was engaged to Chyken.

*She helped me put my wedding dress on, and told me I looked beautiful.

*She proudly stood beside me as I took my wedding vows.

*She kept me together when my world was falling apart when my Dad died.

*She held my hand and stopped me having to walk out of the church on my own behind his coffin.

*She let me move into her house when there really wasn't room.

*She treats Chyken like he has always been part of our family.

*She is an amazing mother.

*She makes me laugh.

*She listens to me.

*She is hopeless at trivia, but comes along to trivia nights regardless.

*She is the bee's knee's, the ant's pant's and the cat's pajamas.

*She has no idea how wonderful she really is.

*She is my best friend.

Me & My Sister
 Today is her birthday. 

Happy Birthday to the best sister in the world!   I hope you have an amazing day.
