My older sister's birthday is today. This week is always such a family week because of July 4th. It is even more so because of the fun memories I have of celebrating my sister's birthday. I wish we lived closer. In fact, I have been quite homesick for the SE lately. More than the geography, I miss my family. I am working on my homesick heart by focusing on having a thankful spirit. I thank God for giving me such a wonderful big sister.
