Happy Birthday, Sister!

For Dorothy Sue with eyes of blue,
It’s birthday number fifty-_____.
(Don’t worry, I won’t tell!)

She's creative & crafty; she's a gardener and loves to travel
...to me she's a sister and a friend.

With five girls in our home as we grew up, we pretty much shared everything...from clothes to chores! I treasure the memories of all the things we've done together over the years...from touring gardens in the spring to shopping at Winners (I still think that red hat looked good on you!)...to a recent outing to watch the Mariners play ball at Safeco Field. Then there are all the places we've visited together...Banff & Lake Louise, Iowa, the Caribbean, South Padre Island, Birch Bay and Manitoba (four times in the past decade). We really go the distance to get together...especially when we live only a few miles apart!
A sister is a very special friend.
Happy Birthday, Dot!

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. ~Author Unknown
