Today is my sister's birthday. I jokingly say she's my favorite sister, but she's my ONLY sister. I'm pretty sure she'd be my favorite even if I had a whole bunch of sisters.
My kids affectionately refer to her as "Aunt Kimmie" and she loves to spoil them. She's the most positive, outgoing, and caring person I know.
She is a friend to all who know her (and she seems to know everybody!). She gives of herself, and takes care of others without ever expecting anything in return. In fact, today she has chosen to spend her day volunteering at The Journey Home, the hospice home where my Mom was cared for.
She and her husband (of 22 years) have opened their home to us so many times since we moved out of state, offering to host parties and dinners whenever we are in town. There is no limit to their generosity and love of family.
I am proud to have her as my sister, and even if we weren't related, I would choose her to be my friend!
Happy Birthday Kim!!
