My sister is 40!

September 10, 1970 my sister Kristin Joy Sumpter was born. I didn't know her until four years later when I was born, but I can not imagine my life without her. When we were growing up I did not know what a blessing and a treasure my sister was, but as I have gotten older and wiser I give God thanks daily for the gift of my sister. When she left for college it was the first time in my life that I realized that her presence could not be taken for granted. I missed her! So, I am blessed that we live 1 1/2 miles away from each other and our kids are best buddies. Kristin Joy Sumpter Rutherford, I am so glad that you are my sister and I can not imagine my life without you in it. Happy Birthday!!!
