The Birth of Greatness


She was my first best friend.

She was my first arch-nemesis.

She was the first girl I ever loved.

She nursed me through my first heartbreak.

She laughed at my first joke, and rolled her eyes at the next 2,674,362.

She has the voice of an angel, and sings as beauty personified.

Her heart is big enough to love anyone, even a scoundrel like me.

She has inspired me, confounded me, infuriated me, counseled me, consoled me, and stood beside me my entire life.

Happy birthday to My Not So Humble Sister.
