Yesterday

Yesterday would have been my older sister Michelle's 41st birthday. She passed away almost 10 years ago and while that overwhelming feeling of loss is now something I just live with day in and day out, it doesn't get any easier. But you do get more used to it. One of the hardest parts of yesterday was not being able to be with my family. The Braves did clinch the wild card spot so that was one bit of goodness in an otherwise pretty hard and sad day. Michelle was a huge Braves fan and she would have been so excited to see them make it to post season so there was something very poetic that. So here's one of my favorite pictures of my sisters and I. In fact I have a big version of it that I hope to find a spot for in my new place. We're so joyful and happy (that's a tiny me in the middle). I miss them both every minute of every day.

I hope your Mondays aren't too terrible. I for one am needing some coffee like a crackhead needs crack. Until tomorrow...
