Through The Years

I had you when I
was so young.
You never left my
side, and we soon
became best friends.
Remember your
pink fur coat?
When I went to my
Jazzercise class,
you wanted to
go with me.
You were good at
everything
you tried.
The teenage years...
You loved to
dress up for
Halloween.
It amazed us when
you climbed
Mt. Shasta...twice!
Remember you
talked me into doing
the mother-daughter
cheer performance?
Yikes!
You're so smart,
and a bit silly.
You're such a
good sister.

  
You're a great
example of how
beauty on the inside
is much more
important than our
physical looks.
And I just wanted
to say
"Happy Birthday Nel!"

― Anita Diamant

This post talks about this. It is so hard for me to understand where Sherri ends and Nel starts. Because there's no interruption on the flood of blessings and happiness shared and enjoyed together.

Happy Birthday Nel! Sweetest girl ever and I bet inside you are all that Sherri says but, girl, outside?? You rule!!!

I Pray that you find and live all the Love, Happiness and Fullfilement that Mom dreamed for you from moment zero.

Your friend Teresa
