Happy Birthday Sherry

Picture from Hometown










Sometimes I think of all the strong women that I have had in my life that have made a real difference in my life. My mom of course comes to mind. I think I am much of who I am because of her. My sister Sherry has made a big difference in my life as well. I was the oldest, and she was the second child. There are four of us all together. To me she is the glue that keeps us all together. She is the one we can all talk to, really open with our hearts, and she seems to understand us all. Maybe she just listens well. I also think of her as friend and not just a sister, maybe because she was my first friend, and person that I shared so much of my life with. We had fun just doing whatever, whenever growing up on the farm out by Nana’s. She’s inspiring to all of us, and always is the hostess with the mostest. She really is a true hostess. She makes all feel welcome, and does her best to make them feel that way and loves to entertain. I think how lucky and blessed I have been to have her in my life for so long. I really enjoy how I feel closer and closer to her as the years have gone by and I think I wrote that too her in my birthday card I sent to her. She’s special in the way she shows love. She’s very giving with her time and love.


Another day at work, it’s only Wednesday, and I’m ready for Friday already.  I remember running to greet her at my grandparents when she was brought home from the hospital. A little angel, I thought when I looked up in my mom’s arms; these big blue eyes peering down at me. Sherry was one of my first influences. We were inseparable. She was tough too. I would knock her down and she’d say, “that didn’t hurt.” She also caused me a great deal of whippons. I really love her a lot. People would say I acted more like her father than her brother. She’s not only beautiful on the outside but inside too. She’s funny with a great sense of humor. We may not be perfect, we had our shares of fights, time of trouble, plenty of laugh’s, and we could always trust each other through anything. She was something back then a little ballerina and tap dancer. Then she won Little Miss Sweet Potato. I remember being so proud of her when she won. I’ve been equally as proud of the young lady she’s become. She’s so smart and has a big loving heart. I’m sure I’ll be writing more about her later.

  1. I have five older sisters. A Mother that I loved with every beat of my heart (still kicking my own butt for NOT being diligent with calling her but alas, now I can’t) so I know what it means to have strong women in your life.
    I mean these beings push little beings out them!
    I get pissed off when I stub my toe!!!!!!!!
    Another great piece. And another great reminder of just how damned handsome you are!

  2. She sounds like one very very special lady buddy!

  3. Aw, you and your sister look so cute in those childhood pictures!

  4. I have two older sisters. Me and my eldest sister are like twins separated by nine years. We’re “peas & carrots”. 😉

    Loved the photos. You looks SO cute together.

  5. This post was really touching. Your sister sounds like the kind of person I love to have has a best friend. You are so blessed.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’d love to hear more about these promises you make to stones, and what kind of stones you collect, and why. Figuratively, of course, I collect stones. I am passionate about learning about love, and what that means to different people. Yet, another reason why I enjoyed this post of yours about your sister. I would be thrilled to learn more about what love means to you.

    Your promises to stones have teased my curiousity.
