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.]
