June In December

If you’re fortunate enough to have a sister, you know what a special relationship it can be. (I know, in some families, there are “sister issues”, but that’s never been the case with my sister, June, and me.) To honor June today – on her birthday – I’m sharing this little saying about sisters:

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities.
She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway.

She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion,
someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark.
She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent,
even your shrink.

 Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child.

                                                                                             –Barbara Alpert

(I hesitate to include that last line, because we’ve never felt that way. At least, I haven’t…. )

Happy Birthday, June. See you this afternoon.
