Today is Heather's birthday!
Heather is 3 years older than me, and I've been trying to keep up with her all my life.
Heather always let me tag along with her and her best friend, Heather (how awesome to have a best friend with your same name, don't ya think?) She let me listen in on grown up conversations, and even let me join in on her totally cool sleepovers.
I remember every summer following along behind her bike on our way to swimming lessons at Downey High School. And on the way home we would stop for a treat at 7-11.
When I was a freshmen in high school, Heather was a senior. She drove me to school everyday, and she invited me to join the crosscountry track team with her.
Once, on our way to school from seminary, our car stalled in the middle of the huge El Vista intersection. Scary!
Heather also drove my friends around town, and sometimes even bought us a snack at Taco Bell. How cool was that?
I think Heather and I look the most alike of the McSisters. And a couple times in High School I was mistaken as her or her twin. Fun!
Heather lives far away from me, now, but she's still such a great example to me. I hope you have a Happy Birthday, Heather!
The best thing about Heather's Birthday, is that it is exactly 2 weeks before mine. Just enough time for you to find me the perfect birthday gift...
