Four years ago

Four years ago today I was working on the final revisions to my prelim proposal and exchanging emails with a friend about wedding invitations. Then my sister died.

This day is hard. Her birthday is hard. She was only 21.

I am thankful that 3.5 years ago I found a wonderful counselor to help me with my grief. I am making time to remember my sister tonight, but today I have to work.

[I try to follow my own advice when someone I know experiences a loss.]

I was noticing the pictures of her in your kitchen the other night. Sometimes when I think about her these days, I feel bad for when we would get mad at her for annoying us when we were kids. I know we were all kids and it was normal, but I just wanted to let you know I still think about her too. She will always live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew her. Love you and *hugs*
