Happy Birthday Sis.....................

On this day in 1969 at 2.05pm (it was a Thursday) my sister Susan was born weighting 6lb 5oz she is my second sister and despite all that I may say at times I do love her and I do like her, yes she has said and done things that I don’t like but that doesn’t mean I don’t like her or that I am not proud to be her sister because I am. 

Sue is one of the strongest if not the strongest woman I know and yes I have said that before on here but since today is her birthday I am saying it again and it’s my blog and I can if I want to… She also has more courage and bounce back than anyone else no matter how often she gets knocked down she bounces back up kind of like one of those punching toys kids have you know the type you hit it and falls down and bounces right back well that is Sue.

Sometimes I do feel she doesn’t have enough self-respect or self-esteem and allows herself to be treated in a way that isn’t right, by that I mean she has been in relationships that are not good for her and that result in her getting hurt and I don’t think she realises how much those of us who love her hate it but since it is her life all we can do is be here for her when she needs us.

She does have a habit of speaking without thinking, she will get angry and pissed off and her mouth will go a mile to the minute and hurtful things will come out and later on when she is calmer she will maybe not always regret what she said but at least how she said it. However “sorry’ is a hard word for Sue to say and she will often exaggerate things in her own head and make mountains out of molehills and after a while she will forget that something may not have been a big deal to start with because in her mind it is a big deal, sometimes she forgets how things really are/were………….this is Sue and those of us who love her and know her understand that about her.

Now of course Sue is not alone in speaking without thinking most of us have done it at some point but that is for another post………………………….lol

This post is about reminding everyone that my sister Sue is an important member of my family and someone we love and cherish and like to have in our lives……………..
