Happy Birthday to my sister-in-law, Liz.
We've known each other for nearly 27 years and have shared lots of ups and downs together. We've been pregnant and had our children within weeks/months of each other each time. Liz had Helen 4.5 months before I had Hugh, I had Claire 6 months before she had Richard and Henry was born 9 weeks before Emily. We've lived near each other (in South Africa and England) and far apart (Chicago and England) but no matter where we are, when we meet up we pick up where we left off. Our children are just the same and even though it can be years between seeing each other, they still hit it off when they get together.
So Liz, thank you for all the laughs, thank you for listening to me when I need someone to talk to, thank you for making us part of the family when we come to visit and most importantly, thank you for just being you! I hope you know how much we all love you and I wish we could still have been in Chicago to celebrate your birthday with you but know that we are thinking of you and wish you a fantastic birthday!
Love you :)
