Marcy soon learned (as we all did) to be plucky growing up in such a large family. She was tough and strong and had night-time dreams of conquering wild animals by leaping on their backs and riding them into submission. Perhaps these nightmares where the first inklings of her desires to work with animals. I am certain they were also a peek into the psyche of this amazing sister of mine. She has the infamous "Whatcott Bounce" we are always hearing about. When you get knocked down you come back up fighting, and with each fight you only become stronger for it. Our friend Marcy has lost some rounds but has never given up the fight. I'd say the overall championship belt goes to.... Marcy! Let's all run around in a circle with our fists in the air to the theme music from Rocky on her birthday shall we? Go ahead and shout "Yo Adrienne" a few times for good measure.
Needless to say we are proud of our sister for completing vet school and finding an awesome fiance along the way. She has also found herself a job and a duplex like a big girl in the big world. I hope that on her birthday this year she can reflect on the past 35 years with relief. She has accomplished her goals with grace. She has overcome her obstacles with courage. She is someone I am proud to know. Someone who is fun to be around. She is someone I trust. I wish her all the best and commend her for what she has done. We all look forward to seeing her get Married this fall.
Congratulations and Happy Birthday Marcy. Keep those feet dancing, lead with your left and never let your guard down. Because as we all know, it's not what you do when you fall but what you do when you get back up that counts.
