Sisters,

Happy Birthday dear Maggie, formerly Donna. I remember you as a little girl, starting school. I remember you leaving home and moving into the first real house I had as a married woman. I remember your marriage and your babies. I remember you leaving home again.

I miss you.

In a book titled “Sisters”, edited by Drusilla Modjeska, she writes, in the introduction, of the “complicated, uneven tide of lived feeling that passes between girls who share parents: rivalry and resentment, sensitivity to slights and differences, tears and tantrums, dreams and fantasies, and love as abiding as blood.”
