Until now, I never...
Had a 50-year-old Sister


One of my sisters is two years (and a half!) older than me, and today she turned 50.  Now I know I didn’t have a lot to do with this event, but I’ve been thinking about her all day.  And not just because she’s turning 50, but because for the past 10 years she has been dealing with breast cancer.  Which means that for her entire 40s, she been dealing with treatments and side-effects, while working full time, raising three kids, and I think that is truly incredible.  Especially since if you met her you would never know that she’s dealing with all that, because she is always so calm, so nice, so positive, and so much fun to be around.  And so today I am wishing her not only a happy birthday, but I’m also wishing most of all that her next decades are cancer free and treatment free.  She deserves it.
