Things I've Learned from My Big Sister
My sister, Ann, turned 37 last weekend. I was only seven years old when she moved out of the house, but as I've gotten older, we've become great friends. I don't even think about our age difference any more. She's been a great support to me over the years, as well as a great source of strength and knowledge. So, here's to Ann and all the things she's taught me:
*It is unacceptable to wear pink and red together, unless it's Valentine's Day. (Equally unacceptable are polka dots and stripes.)
*Alliteration can be used under any circumstances to liven up a dreary day. For example, Dancing in the Dining Room, Lounging in the Living Room, Cuddling in the Kitchen, etc.
*Cleaning corner by corner is the most efficient way to be sure your room is spic and span.
*Take time for yourself. Read, do yoga, or whatever makes your socks go up and down.
*You can drive for quite a while with fuel gauge on empty.
*Dancing is not just a hobby; it's a way of life.
*Follow your dreams, even if they lead through unknown paths.
...and the list goes on. Thanks, sis! I always know I can count on you for good advice and a listening ear.
