|The Turner family (27 in the photo and some are missing.)|
My sister and I are the only children in our family. We are five years apart and she has always been my baby sister. We both had momentous birthdays this year--she is now 75.
Today is her birthday. Wish I had a picture of her when she was little--she was so cute. She looked just like Margaret O'Brien who was a popular child star back then.
We grew up during the 2nd World War and I told everyone that my sister was a princess from Europe sent over to live with us to keep her safe. (I think she was the only one who believed my tall tale and for a while was convinced she was adopted.)
Later she got back at me by reading aloud a page out of my diary about a boy I had a crush on--she did this in front of his house.
Margie married even younger than I did and had four kids.
Really it's been a blessing because we've been able to now only know our grandkids but also our great grandkids.
Happy Birthday, Sis. I know you had your celebration on Sunday, but I hope you have a great day!
Love, Your big Sister, Marilyn
