A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.
Although Heidi left us at the age of 18 when kidnapped,
the memories of our childhood and teen years are priceless treasures to me.
The kidnappers took Heidi but they can't have our hope and memories...they remain.
Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family,
I'm thankful Heidi and I experienced a couple years of college and being grown ups together.
We were more than sisters, we were friends. The goals to spoil each other's children and have
weekly sister days into our senior years disappeared when Heidi did BUT I have this hope...
a hope to see her again one day. It will be a tearful reunion because sisters are sisters for life!
A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit,
I don't spend my life in a fog anymore yet there isn't a day I don't think of my sister.
It is possible to move forward in life while remembering our missing loved ones.
Some of you have lost a sibling, parent, friend, neighbor,
or maybe a complete stranger that touched your life so much that
their death left an imprint on your heart.
Don't ignore these feelings or memories, recognize them,
thank God for the reminder, pray, and continue to live and make
new memories with those around you today. You will only add to your joy ~
it's okay to miss our loved ones yet we can't stop living because they did.
Instead, choose life. Make new memories and share your old ones...
you might be the encouragement someone else needs today.
What is one thing or memory that helps you move forward?
