Happy Birthday to my baby sister

A sister is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink.

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.

Happy Birthday to my sister, who is all these things and more.
How good it is to have a sister whose heart is as young as your own.

That is nice, having such a sister. I have three and we haven't talked or seen each other in 17 years.

You are fortunate to have such a closely knit relationship with your sister. She must be a treasure! :-) (And I'm going to guess she'd say the same things about you!) :-)
