It Would Have Been…

1008111610aToday would have been a happy birthday for my beautiful sister, Lorraine. She would have been 77 years old today.  She left us suddenly on September 4, 2012. I miss her so…  I have a hole in my heart. I miss talking to her on the phone, especially late at night. But no matter when we talked our conversations were long, very long! We lived half a country apart from each other but we kept the phone lines hot!

This is the last picture I took of her. We had met in Colorado to visit our mother. I took this picture on my phone then forgot about it. Not long ago I changed phones and all my pictures were transferred to my new phone. There she was. I looked at her in shock. I miss her so…

If you have a sister, call her today.  Have a good, lively conversation. Laugh a lot! Cry a little! Do some reminiscing. Discuss a TV program or a movie or a book.  Tell her what you’re up to: projects, cleaning, writing, taking care of grandkids, whatever…

Be sure to listen to her…truly listen.

Love her, pray for her, cherish her.
