It seemed like just yesterday that my sister was small, but the years have flown by and now she is a young woman.
Today is her birthday!
I love you, my dear sweet sister and I hope you have a wonderfully happy birthday!
In this photo, my cousin is sitting on the left and my sister, who is about five, is the little one on the right. I love my sister's expression and how she is "playing" for the camera. She always had such a sense of humor when it came to cameras. Also, it was always a special treat to have our cousin visit since we lived several hours from where she lived. If I recall correctly, during this visit she was visiting with a friend from college.
I also love the memories that come flooding back as I look at this photo of the house I grew up in.
The house was wonderful although, looking back, it was small. It had a big L-shaped porch, a beautiful big picture window in the front, a red front door and another door to the right of it which had one of those old time doorbells that you twisted. The house was an old farmhouse and was one of the original houses in the area.
The house also had a front porch swing. During summer thunder storms, my family and I would sit on the swing and watch as thunder, lightning, and rain boomed around us. It was magical. Of course, we would sit out there other times as well, but the rainy times are some of the most memorable.
Such great memories of a wonderful time in my life. Happy Birthday, B.!
