46 years ago I received a wonderful lifelong gift ~ my little sister!

Just over 46 six years ago, if my math is correct (I did not use an excel spreadsheet to calculate these facts....), I was awaiting my 8th birthday.

My mother was super pregnant.

That new little Dawley baby was due any moment....

All I wished for as a birthday gift was a little something (I didn't care if it was a little brother or little sister, and back then, you found out what you got when it appeared kicking and screaming).

My birthday came... and went.... and in true form, my little sister arrived after she was expected.

Although she arrived just 8 days after my birthday, I still consider her the best birthday gift ever.

Suzanne Joy has brought us much JOY, as she has always been her own person, fiercely independent, brilliantly smart, professional and kind, artistic, a humanitarian, the sense of reason, generous, fun, an animal lover, a great enjoyer of music/sports/comedy, and of life in general... I can not say enough about my little seesta. I admire her immensely, and I love her till the ends of the earth.

Here is a picture of her sitting in the suitcase that our Mom came home with from the hospital, after she had Si, our youngest brother ~ he is equally as awesome, and a story for yet another day:

I am a Putnamaniac that has received some great gifts in my day, including my little seesta, Sue!
