When I think of my sister Lisa D. Robinson I think of my second Momma. Lisa was 9 years old when I was born and she was very serious about her role as big sister. She took me everywhere with her and always treated me like I was her equal. The best part about having a sister that old, is at one time I was able to wear her clothes and it was at the time when she had all the cool name brand outfits. She always kept my hairstyle up to date. Even to this day we live 4 1/2 hours away if the phone rings it’s Lisa doing her motherly check in.
Lisa is also a wonderful Mother to her children and grandchildren. She always sacrifices and makes decisions that will benefit the family. She is forward thinking and is always looking for ways in which they can grow mentally, spiritually and physically.
In terms of food Lisa hates dips and sauces especially those which contain mayonnaise. As far as she is concerned mayonnaise is a “dirty word”. This didn’t stop my little Momma from making my mayonnaise sandwiches as she would hand them to me she would turn up her face and say this is disgusting . One of favorite memories was when she she would make rice krispy treats when we were kids. I absolutely loved rice krispy treats. I remember one day I hurt my arm running to tease my older brother about some rice krispy treats she had made.
Lisa is as I always say a natural born leader. She advocates for those who have a hard time advocating for themselves. She also teaches and exposes people who normally wouldn’t have access to learning certain things. She was a police officer in one of the roughest cities in America for many years and couldn’t tell you how many male and female officers stood on her shoulders to make it to the next level. She has pushed through in the face of many adversities and she has made many sacrifices for many friends and family alike.
When I asked Lisa who her favorite chefs are she said both of her grandmothers and her mom and dad. When I asked her what is her favorite food she said spaghetti so here is my recipe for spaghetti. It’s dedicated to my sister Lisa. Happy birthday beautiful! I hope you have many more.
