19 years.....

It is hard for me to imagine that it has already been 19 years.... I think about all that has changed in my life in those 19 years. All that my sister has had to miss in those 19 years since her life was cut way to short. She has been dead longer than she has been alive. How is that possible??

I thank god for the people in my life who still talk about her!
I thank god that my kids love seeing pictures of her and sending her balloons in heaven!
I thank god that I have my supportive parents still here who every year go thru those days over and over!
I thank god for her friends who have not forgotten her!

I thank god that I was lucky enough to have a sister at one time and that I cherished the time we had! I love you Meg and miss you each and every day. But, I know that you are watching over all of us and keeping us safe.

Is it me, or does her smile get bigger every time I see a picture of her? Very hard to believe it's been that long-then again, I'm sure at times it must seem like a lifetime without her. All I have to do is close my eyes (maybe not even that) and I can see you standing there reading to her at the interment service. I won't ever forget her or the lessons that my children have learned (and will continue to!) because of her, but I sure do wish she was here. I know that Meg has brought you and I closer Jen and I am grateful for that. I'm sending you lots of extra hugs and love to get through these next 8 days and of course, beyond. Love you, Jen.
