I cannot believe that MY little sister is ten years old today! When did this happen??
I remember the day you were born, not quite like it was yesterday, but somewhere thereabouts. I was buried under a collapsing blanket fort in our aunt's living room when Daddy called from the hospital to tell us that you, a rosy baby girl, had come into the world. And even though I already had three sisters, I was muchly excited about gaining yet another one (poor Doofus).
I am so glad that the Lord gave you to us. Your cheerful tone is a joy in our household, and you brighten even the grayest of days. I love the way you can make me laugh when I feel disinclined to utter a laugh.
And now you're ten years old. You've left behind the days of single digits, and you are now quickly approaching those years which the earth describes as "old." But don't worry! You'll never get too old for me not to call you "Teddy!" :D
I hope you have the Happiest of Happy Birthdays today!
