Happy Birthday Ellen

Today is also my sister's birthday. She is my younger sister, the youngest of the three children. Four and half years is a big difference when you are 6 and 10 or even 16 and 20. Now, it means nothing.

Ellen is my best friend, other than my husband. I count on her for her humor, her clarity, her intelligence.

She is the best organized person I know. She is organized in a good way---a comfortable, I know where to find things way, not an alphabetize the family kind of way.

I swear she could herd cats. She has a wonderful way of connecting with people and getting them to work to their potential.

She cares about justice, mercy, and people, which is why she is a great lawyer. Her clients know she is working for them, not just the money.

Ellen is always there for me, and I hope I am there for her when she needs me the most.

I love you, Ellen. Happy Birthday.
