Yet another one

As the days pass I realize my birthday is ever so near. How time flies when you do nothing in particular. Makes me do one of those what does it all mean things, though the odds are slim seeing as how I really don't have the time, energy or interest to do so. I'm another year older and all that I have to show for it is that I have managed to keep myself and others around me alive and don't seem to have flucked up too much, seeing how things are actually kind of decent in my life.

I'm not one of those people that has ever made a big deal over my birthday. It's just another day to me. Not to mention growing up with five siblings tends to put a damper on the whole birthday thing. We never had birthday parties or cake. No presents just a pat on the back, a "How does it feel to be another year older?" from my dad,and a sarcastic remark from my mom about how as we get older or likelihood of being loved dwindles (not very motivating to hear on your tenth birthday.

The only one to ever show interest was my little sister. The one person that no matter what she's doing or where she is will call me and say, "I'm glad you were born." Though over time our lives have taken different paths. Their own very different twists and turns, we know we can count on each other when things get difficult.

We've seen each other through heartache, births, deaths, joys, adventures, simply put life. Now don't get me wrong we are like all sisters and have had are share of arguments, disagreements, fights, etc. Yet no matter what has happened if the other is needed they are there. No hesitations, no comments or criticisms. Just unwavering support.

So as my birthday grows closer, and I turn another year older, though I may not have a party or do something spectacular, I can always count on the hour long chat with my baby sis wishing me another year of joy, good health and love. Though I'd really wish she'd actually stop being so cheap and actually get me a gift this year lol!
