Today’s gratitude is for Seeds of transformation planted by my sister, Mary Rose. I’m celebrating my 60th birthday with 60 days of gratitude for people in my life.
My gratitude today must begin with an apology. I’m sorry that I wasn’t a better big sister, a kind and caretaking big sister to my little sister, Mary. I was mean to her by kicking on her mattress on the bunk bed above mine, trying to get her to stop rocking herself to sleep. It didn’t occur to me to hold her or sing to her or tell her a story.
