Birthday Girl!

Is solace anywhere more 
comforting than
in the arms of a sister.  

~Alice Walker

My wonderful sister just
 had a birthday.
After such a crazy year,
I am

Last year at this time 
she was at the beginning 
of her chemo treatments.

She is cancer FREE!
 Do either one of us complain
 about turning another 
year older?
No Way!
Do we take any year, month, 
day, minute for granted?
No Way!

Every breath is a gift.
Celebrate every birthday 
with Enthusiasm!
Thank Our Father
 for the gift of life.

And, today, 
I am Thanking
Thanking God 
for the gift of My Sister!

I am so glad that your sister is celebrating her birthday cancer free. Her story gives real meaning to the slogan of the American Cancer Society: "More Birthdays". Having lost a sister to cancer, this post brought tears to my eyes....there is nothing like the love between sisters. Happy Birthday, Sherrie!
