TODAY is more than St. Patrick's Day

It is my sister's 40th Birthday!! Happy Birthday Traci! Honestly, you don't look a day over 25!!! I have always thought you get prettier and prettier every year! Look out 50!!! Thanks for being the best sister in the world. I"m really the only one who can say that and it be right, other people just say that because they have too! You have always been so nice to your little bratty sister. Remember when I wore your new purple Arizona National jacket at breakfast. I wanted to wear it over my clothes I wouldn't get any food on them. OH, you were mad, then I said something, I don't know what. But I got in trouble and dad actually grounded me! Grounded me, that was the first and last time I was ever grounded. It really made an impression on me. And do you remember me eating a package of sweettarts that you bought. You were so made at me for that too! I was always in your hair!! And then do you remember me "dusting" our dresser with hairspray??? That was a classic move on my part! Anyway, thanks for putting up with me as a little sister. I have always looked up to you, always. You were who I wanted to be, thanks for being such a great example to me. You are an awesome mother, wife, and sister.

I wish I could hop in the car and be with you on your birthday. In fact I have contemplated it several times. I just can't get the logistics of it down, it's hard for mom's to run off and do anything on the spur of the moment. We have to much to plan and organize! But just know my heart is there and I"ll be thinking of you all day long!!! Happy Birthday!!!! Trachel

Okay Trachel. You really know how to get the tear ducts working. Thank you soooo much for ALL of the kind words and memories. And I guess I really am 40 cuz the only bratty moment I remember is the purple jacket one. The others, nope. Not so much. What I DO remember are all the cute notes you would leave me on my pillow or on my dresser. I have them all saved to this day. YOU are the best sister. I'm crying as I type. I too wish we lived closer for days like this. I would love to spend special days with you. You've made my day. Thank you for making it so special. I love you more than you know.
