Sharing some sisterly love

Today I want to send a big shout-out to my sister, Rosalie, who's celebrating her birthday. I won't tell you how old she is because if I do, she might stop reading my blog and if she does that, I'll have no-one there to send me urgent text messages alerting me of the typos I've published, which could make things quite challenging (like the time I typed 'not', when I meant 'now').

There are so many stories I could share with you about Rosalie: silly stories, sentimental stories, hilarious stories, inspirational stories. She is one of the very few people that I have known intimately my entire life. But because I am time poor, my birthday wish for her today comes in the form of a short poem which I wrote with the aid of some old photos. If she does decide to ever speak to me again, it will be testament to our sisterly love :)


An Ode to Rosalie


R is for rushing, she never does rest.

O is for optimist, she always looks for the best.


S is for singing (she's quite good, I must say)



A is for agile, she still dances ballet.


L's for her laughter and the joy that it brings.


I's for intelligent; she's read so many things



and

E is for elegant because, as everyone knows, Rosie looks lovely wherever she goes.


Sending you a great big kiss,


Love from your baby sister. Mwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
