Yesterday when I checked the calendar - no family birthdays. That's not true today. I don't have any old pictures to share this time, because the birthday girl is my sister-in-law.
I have three brothers. Three younger brothers. And when growing up I could never quite get over the idea of feeling a bit cheated out of having a sister (couldn't one of them have been a girl - you know - 2 and 2 - and then I could have had bunk beds!). But you know, all my brothers are really great, and I wouldn't trade them for anything (if you had asked me that when I was about twelve you would have gotten a different answer, I'm sure), and the thing is - they all married great girls.
So now I have three sisters-in-laws. And all three of them are people that I am really glad I know and people that I am thrilled are part of the family.
Happy Birthday, Patti!
And I don't have a picture of her to share - but here's the two little ones she spends her days running after!
Next family birthday in two days. They just keep coming!
