One Year

Here it is, the day I have been dreading all year. The one year Anniversary of my sister's death. This time last year, I remember getting the phone call at 9:30 a.m. telling me my sister went into Cardiac Arrest and was rushed to the hospital. She couldn't breathe. A few minutes later...another call, she was gone! It seems like only yesterday that I saw her, yet it seems like it has been years since I have heard her voice. I can still hear her laugh, see her smile, see the way she used to squwint because her eyesight was so bad. She was so gentle with animals. She and Timothy Treadwell would have made an awesome couple. She was one of a kind when it came to sick animals. Mom always said that she could go in a cave with a Grizzly bear and they would come out hugging! This is true! She was awesome! She used to drive me NUTS calling me every 5 minutes to tell me stupid things and would not let me off the phone for nothing!! I would give ANYTHING for that phone to ring and her to be on the other end. It's amazing how many small things we take for granted while we have them around. They say time heals all wounds... not really. I cry a little less, but the pain is still strong. I miss her MORE every day, and I can't bhink of gare to growing old without my sister by side to share things with me. It sucks...just plain SUCKS!
