Beloved daughter, sister and friend
You are missed
Okay, so blogger is being uncooperative, and not letting me post the photos that I had planned to post. I found some old shots of my sister and her horse, and a couple of things from a family trip to FL. I guess I will post those later, with some reminiscing. But, I wanted to post this little memorial today, since it would have been Terri's 33rd birthday.
It's weird to realize that I've lived almost 15 years longer than my sister, and that my youngest sibling (the 2 year old) will grow up never having known her. So, for a little time today, I'm giving in to my melancholy and shedding a tear or two. But, I know I'm not crying for her anymore. She's in a better place. I cry for myself and the empty space that she used to occupy in my heart. Even though we didn't always get along (siblings will be siblings), as a child I took it for granted that she (and the rest of the family) would always be around. And I think about her still, almost every day.
