It's my sister's birthday today and she's home with us for the Holy Week.  Nene (that's our pet name for her) is the youngest in the family, but she's the most determined of us siblings to succeed in life.  She's very goal-oriented and is very dedicated to her work (much like our Nanay).  I'm really proud of her and I know she will accomplish so much more because she's smart, talented, and a go-getter. 

Ne, here's something I picked up from the Net.  You know I was never the poet (kamo lang na ya ni Nay) so hanggang cut-and-paste lang ko.  Hehe πŸ™‚  But, this says what I want to say so perfectly that I'm posting it here.

There's no better friend than a sister –

There's no one more loyal and true

And even when sisters are different

Their likeness come shining through

Perhaps it's a family resemblance

That strengtens the bond they share

Or maybe it's just that sisters live life with a similar flair!

A sister remembers your collegehood

She knows more than you will admit

Of times you were LIttle Miss Perfect

And times you gave others a fit!

She's seen you in situations

When silence just wouldn't suffice

And managed somehow to get by

With those sisterly words of advice!

And when some encouragement's needed

A sister will always be there….

To listen…

To laugh…

Or to lean on…

To comfort, or simply to care.

There's no one who's more in your corner

And no one you're more grateful to

There's no better friend than a sister

And no better sister than you!


Love you, sis!  You're my bestest friend!  Mwah!  Enjoy your day and your vacation!
