Happy Birthday Bridget

Dear Bridget,
I cannot believe you are turning 19 today, I feel like just yesterday Mom & Dad told me I was going to be a big sister & I will never forget how excited I was.  When you were born I was so happy, even though I did not understand that you were supposed to live with us & asked Mom when you were going 'home', not realizing that you were.  I loved everything about you instantly & was obsessed with helping Mom take care of you.  You were such a precious little baby.  

Since then we've made too many memories to count & I'm constantly reminded how much I love you & love being your older sister.  When we were little I had so much fun driving you crazy, which as I always remind you prepared you for the real world.  The times that I used to put your stroller upside down outside when I had to go inside to use the bathroom so you would not roll away (Mom always loved when I did that) to all of the Christmases I tricked you into showing me what you got me & then refused to show you what I got you, you've always been a good sport about me messing with you.  Since those days we've both grown up so much—it's crazy to think that we are 19 & 22, it feels like just yesterday we were babies.

Over the years you have grown into the most gorgeous girl, & I feel like I forget to tell you how pretty you are.  Over the years we have grown so close & have become best friends.  We have an incredible bond that can never be broken, no matter how many fights we have or how many times we drive each other crazy or are mean to each other.  We are stuck with one another & I love that; as you love to say "blood is thicker then water," which is so true when it comes to us.  Even though we had some years that we didn't get along, & we still have our days that we don't I know that you are always there for me, & that I am always there for you no matter what.  I will defend you until no end, which you already know.  

Since we've gotten older we've gotten to have so much fun with each other.  From crazy long trips to NYC to hanging out in the living room watching Law & Order: SVU for hours, we always have a good time.  Whether we're grabbing sushi, hanging out at my apartment, or going out, we always make our own fun.  I love having you around at school & the fact that we are getting to that age where we can share friends.  I know that sometimes you get jealous when I call my sorority sisters my sisters, but you should always know that you are my one & only forever sister; like I said you're stuck with me.

I want you to know that you are such an amazing little sister & I could not ask for anyone better.  I know that most of the time I need a little extra help & you are always there to do it.  I know that sometimes I get agitated very easily & cranky, but I want you to know that I always love you & appreciate your attempts to be patient with me.  When I need someone to take care of me you are always there, which I hope you know means the world to me.  I know it's not always easy having a sister with health problems, but you take it in stride, & we make the best of everything.  I want you to always know that I am extremely thankful for all of this.  Thank you for being you, thank you for always being there for me, thank you for being such a great person.

Basically I just want to say Happy Birthday for the best sister in the world.  I hope you have the most amazing day & I cannot wait to see you later.  I'm dying to share some of the surprises I have up my sleeve for you & to give you your birthday present!  See you later!

Happy Birthday Bitch!!
