Happy Birthday Dena

derkdena.jpgdenabubble.jpgdenah.jpgdena.jpgdena44.jpgscan10028.jpgdenalittle.jpgYear after year, I search for a way to tell her how I feel about her and everytime I wonder if it hasn’t all been said before. I try doing this with my family. But this year is extra special because it contains all the prayers in pictures that I got printed in a childrens book for my sister for her birthday.  I loved it and think it turned out wonderful.   She said she loved it.  I thought I’d share some laughter that we all have shared through photos. This is to remind me of how unique our family is and to tell her that she could never, ever be replaced in my life. It is to let her know how much I appreciate her. It’s a thank-you for every time she has shared a worry or tear, prayed for me,
every time she listened and been the only one who understood,
and I always left with a smile. It’s to tell her that she being my sister is one of the most important in my life and that she is not only my sister, but a sweet and dear friend. We all love you, Dena, and hope your birthday will be the beginningof a year of happiness and joy and faith.  Yes she ate dogfood when she was little, I always joke her about that.  I was a jogger when I was a teenager, and she would always join me on her runs, and it always amazed me how this 10 year old could keep up with her 16 year old brother.   She runs now just about as much as me.   She always loved riding on the back of the motorcycle with me too.
 I think about all the changes in life. Time has a way of changing things. But one constant with my sister Dena is the joy she brings in our lives.
