A brother's birthday greeting for his blood sister.

My dear Sister Gertrude, your brother Uriah tenders this birthday ave to you.
In the Holy Writ we read, "The length of our days is seventy years --- or eighty, if we have the strength." (Ps. 90.10).
You have reached that golden age and become an octogenarian. And knowing you, as I think I do, I know you are looking hopefully to the future. It is no accident that you have lived these many years, still in reasonably good health and briskly active. You have lived an exemplary life. Indeed, you are an example for others to follow.
So, let me share these words about how I perceive you. Recalling our growing-up years I am compelled to say, I am sure our mother would be pleased to hear what her oldest son has to say about her oldest daughter.
I perceive you to be compassionate, eager to help others; positive, embracing the good that exists; God-conscious, acknowledging God as your present companion; joyful - maintaining joy even when happiness eludes you for a little while ; grateful, taking nothing for granted but everything as a blessing; and being an encourager who inspires others to be hopeful and potential-directed.
Sister Gertrude, may your 80th Birthday Celebration be a memorable delight that affords you with inspiration for victorious living in the future.
With Love.

Your Brother,

Aug. 2006
