My family is big on birthdays... or maybe just I am and the rest of my family indulges me... I don't know.
I love my own birthday... send me best wishes? Yes please! Come out a celebrate with me? Of Course! Oh you got me a gift! Now I know you love me so.
The last birthday I spent with my sister Julie she was turning 20. One of those milestone birthdays that end in a zero and tend to be bigger celebrations than the rest of the birthday for the next decade.
Well this year, in just over a month Julie would have turned 30. I need to do something to honor that... to celebrate my little sister. To reflect... has it really been 10 years since we've celebrated a birthday together?
In true Julie style I am using her birthday to help others.
Friends, family and random strangers who may read my blog... lets work together and carry on Julie's fight to find a cure and celebrate the light she was to others who fought alongside her against Cystic Fibrosis.
