Yup, today is my birthday. While I have much to be happy & greatful for, I can not lie about how much I miss my big sister Oona every year that passes. She has been gone for almost 9 years already... its been 9 birthdays since she recited "Happy Birthday To You" by Dr Seuss to me. It was her favorite Dr Seuss book, and my dad used to read it to us all the time when we were kids. When we got older she bought a copy of it and used to call me bright & early on my bday, and recite the whole thing. Well, I can't hear her wonderful voice anymore, but thanks to Youtube, I can get a rendition of the Dr Seuss classic by a loving dad dedicated to his daughter. Hey, its not my sister... but it will do!!! I miss you Oona... more and more each day. Thanks for always making my birthday so special. Just remember:
"Today you are you... that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is you-er than you. Shout loud I am lucky to be what I am... thank goodness I'm not just a glam or a ham, or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam! I am what I am, thats a great thing to be... If I say so myself, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!"
