To My (Little) Sister on Her Birthday

Bow, today is your birthday. (Your thirtieth! When did that happen?) 

Thank you for being so kind. I don't think I've ever met anyone with a more generous heart. You have helped me and my family out countless times, without questions or judgment. Thank you for not making me feel like the nuisance I know I sometimes am. For saying "sure!" when I ask you to sew something or bake something or knit something random. Thank you for introducing me to Downton Abbey and for telling me it was okay to stop watching in anger after that THING happened with the GUY and the LOVE STORY THAT IS NO MORE. 

I love you and I'm lucky to have you. You are the best little sister. Happy birthday.  

 2008. Pre kids. We were so well-rested then.
