One More Day . . .

5. You have one wish…what do you wish for?

Almost seven months ago, my sister left this Earth for her Heavenly home.  It was sudden.  I never got to say good-bye to her.

My wish is that I could spend one more day with her.  I would love to tell her how much she is loved.  How much I miss her.

During that day, I would do what I am known for – being unpredictable.  We would go on a road trip with no real destination.  I would take a million billion photos of our adventure.  Later I would smile when I would remember that one more day I spent with her.

We would talk about our youth and laugh our butts off.  Backstreet Boys or New Kids on the Block would be playing on my radio.

We would call my mom and pretend that some random Hispanic guy or a guy with a bad haircut was calling to ask her on the date.

If I had one wish, I would want more day with my sister.  As Trace Adkins sings “You’re Gonna Miss This,”  I truly do miss her and the times we spent together.

Have a magical day!


Mama’s Losin’ It

    I’m sorry for your loss. There are always so many things unsaid, so many things you wish you had done with them when someone dies. I’m not sure the pain ever goes away, but you do learn to live with it. Remember, too, she lives on in your memories and your heart.

      I think my issue with her death was that it was unexpected. My life was turned upside down that day. I became an only child per say at that point.

    I have three sister and can only imagine the pain you must feel losing one. Seems impossible to wrap our minds around the idea of never seeing someone again. Especially someone we grew up with.

      Thanks! She was my only sister. The last time I saw her was in June. She died in late August.
      She was 2 years 4 months younger then me so I did grow up with her.

    I wish I had some way to grant your wish! Truly one of the blessings I regularly count is that my losses have come with enough forewarning to say my goodbyes. I think it would be very hard to lose a loved one suddenly. Can’t imagine actually. I am sending thoughts of peace and comfort your way.

      She was only 38 years old. Very unexpected and sudden.
      Thanks for replying.
