The truth is I only have one sister. Her name is Jacci and this is a picture of the
aggravating little cuss lovely young woman. I love her and her family. Today is her birthday. I won’t tell how old but she is my “little” sister so she is both younger than me and significantly smaller. Cool how that works.
She is mom to 3 ridiculously cool kids, Jackson, Jenna and Jonah(who, inicidently made an appearance in an earlier post). She is wife to a guy I would easily call my brother and not my brother-in-law although he is a cop. I guess that makes my brother-in-law my brother in law, or something like that. Take a seat if you’re feeling dizzy. By the way, Greg, sorry I cropped you out of that picture. It’s her birthday and you know how she can be. Don’t answer that. Kidding, I’m only kidding.
Being that I am the older brother and I took my duty seriously with my sister. I tried to teach her the ways of servanthood. I gave her every chance to bring me what was out of my reach. I tried to teach her humility by embarrassing her in front of her friends when I could. I tried to teach her the culinary refinements of life by allowing her to make me a sandwich or a snack when possible.
In a post earlier this year I chronicled how we tried to teach each other anger management but it turned out more like anger mismanagement. One of the pitfalls of living out of the country is that these days come and we can’t be there to celebrate. So……..
I love you Jacci and I hope you have a great birthday.
Anybody have a younger sibling and try really hard to pass on your wisdom like I did?
