I’ve been a serious slacker, but I couldn’t miss today’s Thursday Thanks.
Because March 6 marks the day that I got a little sister–my taller, wiser, younger sister.
And I could not be more thankful for this girl.
It’s the way she knows baseball things and hollers knowledge from the stands to support the boys. The way her thoughts rocket from her brain and over her lips without apology. The way she calls me out on my bull-drama like no one else on the planet is brave enough to do.
I can always count on her to share a drink (tea or something stiffer), to share a laugh (and not prim, sissy giggles–but messy, snorty, all-in-body-shaking-til-you-tinkle silly), to have a plan. Thank goodness she always has a plan.
She’s a bulldog in the courtroom. A bailiff told her so. She sings bedtime songs to the boys like a Disney princess. And she brushes another brain surgery off like dirt off her shoulder.
On her birthday, and every day, I’m grateful for my beautiful sister.
Who are you thankful for today?
