My younger sister would have been 19 today. Half of my heart lives in heaven and half lives with me trying to sustain a feeling that at times resembles hope. Maybe I can save my family and even myself. Maybe I can help others heal. It is such a battle to survive each day when half of me has been gone for six years. I wonder when the toll of having a half a heart will win and what is left can no longer do the work of two.
I miss her everyday. I sometimes look at Emma, & think, "What would she be like? Would she be as brilliant, as beautiful, & as precious, as her twin sister?" And then I know in my heart, Yes She IS! And I can't wait to see her in Heaven one day! RIP My Angel! Mommy Loves You!
