Two Months Ago Today

Two months ago today, September 4, I got a call late in the night. Lorraine was gone… probably a heart attack. She was my only sister and was just two years and three and a half months older than me. I can’t begin to tell you how much I miss her.

Sometimes I think I’ll call her to ask a question. She always had good answers.

Sometimes I think we just need to talk something over. We had good, interesting discussions. We both loved reminiscing about our childhood.

Sometimes I’ve wanted to call her to tell her some good news. We both always got excited for each other.

We both loved bragging about our grandchildren to each other. We were both always impressed with their ambitions, their abilities,  their talents, their dreams…

But I can never talk to her again. I have a hole in my heart and it hurts.

Today a friend, Sharron, gave me a gift. It’s a little handicraft idea she got a hold of and made some to give as gifts. It’s made of Scrabble tiles and the little tray the tiles sit on. If you can’t read mine it says: JOY.  She had written a Bible verse to go with it: “Weeping endures for a night…but…joy comes in the morning.” Psalms 30:5. She told me I was the first one she thought of to give one too! She’ll never know what this means to me! She didn’t know I’m hurting especially today. She said she just felt she should give this to me today. Thank you so much, Sharron. I needed this little reminder.

    I am sorry you are sad today Mom. What a lovely gift and reminder your friend gave you. Did she know how much you love to play scrabble?


    • Thanks Pam. No she didn’t know I like to play Scrabble. She had asked on fb if anyone had old Scrabble games they would part with. I, of course, didn’t give her mine. I seldom get to play but I still love it. 😉

    “Weeping endures for a night…but…joy comes in the morning.” I really needed to hear that. Thank you. It lovely how sometimes you read things at the exact moment in your life that you need to hear them and believe in them. Hoping for strength for your heart. I know how you must miss her.


    • It is amazing how sometimes just the right words come at just the right moment!
