Kelly, much like her youngest, Elijah, used to get into all sorts of devious trouble as a child, 
often involving myself (aka the crying baby with toothpaste all over her face).

Even so, she has always, ALWAYS been the best of big sisters.

And I love her so. 

Happy birthday, Kelly!

I know some sisters who only see each other on Mother's Day and some who will never speak again.  But most are like my sister and me... linked by volatile love, best friends who make other best friends ever so slightly less best.  ~Patricia Volk


  1. I logged on this morning fully expecting a beautiful post about Blake's birthday and imagine my surprise to have a post all about me! This brought tears to my eyes! Thank you my lovely, lovely sister! And while I am taken aback to be compared to Elijah - I suppose I have that coming given photographic evidence posted. Thank you for choosing this story over the infamous beanbag gymnastics incident!!! So grateful to have you as my best friend!!!!

  2. Wow, those photos bring back memories ...good ones ...can't tell you enough how proud I am of both of you.

  3. Mum, look at my smile in that last picture... reminiscent of Elijah's smirk yes???

  4. Yes Kelly, very like Elijah !
