I’ll Be Missing You
My sister Laura would have been 60 years old today. She was a Thanksgiving baby (not born on Thanksgiving, but Mom was in the hospital with her on T-Day), which seems appropriate, considering that she was one of the most thankful people I have ever met.
Even when she had MS that left her unable to move anything but her head, she would say “I’m the luckiest person on earth.”
I remember her telling me how magical it was that she could be so still, because then she would sit outside under the crabapple tree and birds would land on her. She loved that.
Sometimes I get mad that she had to die. But other times I think she just graduated early, like an advanced student.
