times like when we raced. you fell, i won. the times we fought over who would wash the dishes. the times we would walk home from primary school together. the secrets we have shared and the heartbreak we have conquered. i wouldn't be who i am with out you. you wouldn't be who you are without me. we have crossed oceans together. grown up together. went to university together and graduated together. we have such a strong bond and i thank god for every day that i have you in my life. you are my sister. you are an amazing person, with such a bright spirit and a smile that lights up your beautiful face. stay as you are. you are perfect that way. even with all your "ways" i would not change you for the world.
happy birthday. enjoy it. embrace it. own it. i love you.
