happy birthday, Anne!

Anne sends me off to Girl Scout camp, 1967

Fifty-one years ago today,
my dad called from the hospital to tell me
I finally (love my 2 brothers) had a sister.
That call made me the happiest 6-year-old alive!
Time, distance, raising families and taking different life journeys separated Anne and me until two years ago.
She reached out and we forged a new relationship.
We talk often and are now sharing a spiritual journey that's unbelievably deep, rich and real.
It's so great to share with each other
what God is doing in our lives. 
My sister is one of the bravest, most loving, honest people I know. Today I honor and wish my Anne a very happy 51st birthday!

With our dad in September
