March 17 is my sister Wendy's birthday. She left this earth somewhat unexpectedly last November. It is difficult to articulate her absence; my usual writerly self stumbles to express thoughts that float about in our hearts and minds.
We love you.
Your generous, giving spirit was always appreciated.
Your nieces and nephews knew they were loved.
Your 3 sisters still tell our inside jokes, knowing if you were here, you'd laugh.
We're thankful that you are in heaven. With Mom.
We're blessed that God made you just for our family.
We miss you.
Hug your loved ones today. Thanks for coming by.
Blessings to you all,
