Today is your birthday. A teenager now. All 13 years we have seen you grow up into a fun loving girl, full of life and adventure and now on another path through the teens.
You have been like a best friend to me. A little helper always ready to give a hand. Sharing special times together. The laughter, the talking and the best hugs .... I miss that now.
A wonderful sister with a ton of patience for your little brothers. Caring for them I know you do your best to to be a big sister.
You're in a new place now, new school and making new friends. Always remember that we are never that far.
Happy 13th Birthday Ash!
