Sisters

Today, my teaspoon of happy
came in a phone call from
my baby sister
who is about to have a baby girl
of her own.
She just found out the new little bundle
will not follow our family theme
and be a boy.
She will have a daughter,
the first of us girls
to do so.
But my happy does not come soley
from the news delivered via cell signal
many states away.
My joy in the moment
came simply because she called
me
first.
