GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
The thing about big sisters is ... oh, lots of things. And if you are blessed to have a big sister in this world, you know that you will always:
-Have a fair, honest critic.
-Be harassed, tortured and embarassed mercilessly. Often. And with full malice.
-Have someone to call when you're weepy at 4AM.
-Want to intermittently hug and choke her.
-Be able to sing duets of the most popular hits of the 1980s...pitifully off key and with the wrong lyrics.
-Get schooled in a plethora of topics; some quite helpful - some, not so much.
-Fight to the death for her.
-Have a lifetime BFF.

"As Frosty Always Says, Happy Birthday!"
Ps 1:1-2, 3, 4 and 6 R. (see John 8:12) Those who follow you, Lord, will have the light of life. Blessed the man who follows not the counsel of the wicked. Nor walks in the way of sinners, nor sits in the company of the insolent, But delights in the law of the LORD and meditates on his law day and night. He is like a tree planted near running water, That yields its fruit in due season, and whose leaves never fade. Whatever he does, prospers. Not so the wicked, not so; they are like chaff which the wind drives away. For the LORD watches over the way of the just, but the way of the wicked vanishes. R. Alleluia, alleluia. The Lord will come; go out to meet him! He is the prince of peace.
