2017 Already Off to a Hard Start

2917 is off to a very hard start.  I buried my oldest sister yesterday.  It was unexpected.  She had some health issues but contracted the MRSA virus and her body was just not able to fight it off.  Her birthday was Christmas Day; she was 74...

I lost my youngest sister a year and a half ago so now I am the only one left.  It seems so strange that I will not have anyone to discuss our growing up years with or that will get the inside jokes our family shared.  The three of us were separated by ten years so it was always interesting to see how one of the others interrupted a particular incident.  We grew up back in the days where we slept together.  I remember that my older sister and I shared a bed for years and I was so disappointed when she got her own room and I inherited my younger sister.  My older sister was an accomplished pianist and I loved listening to her play.  She was a girly girl and we both inherited my aunts's love of shoes.  She will be sorely missed.

I have several projects that I was excited about starting in the new year but they are going to have to wait, for a little while anyway....I am really going to miss my big sister.....

This little flower represents how I feel.....peeking out trying to find light among all the junk.....

Hugs and blessings,
