Lost Post: A Sister is a Girl's Best Friend

Just found this post in my drafts. Not sure why it never got posted. And even though it's not even close to her birthday, all the rest is true and could be said any day of the year.

I'd like to tell you about my sister. She is almost six years younger than me and is way cooler than me. She is beautiful and funny and smart and one of the best moms I know. She and I share memories that no one else can because of our shared childhood. We can share a look and know what the other is thinking. We can say "Dougherty" and giggle. We can talk about the funny things our parents do and laugh together. We can call each other with troubles and cry together. I know that no matter what, I can count on her to understand and love me anyway. And she knows the same about me. She is, and has always been, my best friend and I don't know what I'd do without her.

I love you, Ada. Happy Birthday.

Ada, I was wondering why it ended up at the top of my posts! :) And no, you're not in trouble. I'm glad you found it. I'm just sorry I didn't post it when I wrote it.
