Today we got good news that Shannon is leaving the hospital! We've been praying for this day for weeks. We have all been wanting to break her out so that she could enjoy her 40th birthday at HOME.
Tomorrow she will be 40, and I will be 44. Having the same birthday is just one of the special things I share with my sister. There were probably many years that we blew out candles on the same cake - but I remember one year in particular where there was a party, and one large sheet cake, and we each got to pick our own color for the frosted roses. I think I picked yellow or red, but I'm sure she picked pink. Shannon ~ let's skip the frosted roses and get something decadent and chocolatey and call each other with our mouths full.
How is possible that this sweet thing in the flowered purple coat below is now 40?
The best gift will be getting a birthday call from you and the caller ID tells me you are HOME.
