You know full as well as I do the value of sisters' affections to each other; there is nothing like it in this world. ~ Charlotte Bronte

In late May two of my mom's sisters came to visit her. It warmed my heart to see them all together. Smiling, laughing, gossiping, and sometimes even bickering about silliness. 

The bond between sisters is unlike no other. I don't know what I would do without mine. We call each other frequently even though we're miles apart and when we see each other in person, it's as if no time has passed. 

Lately, Mandy and I have had a lot of heart to heart talks. As you can imagine, dealing with this whole situation has weighed heavily on us. We are trying hard to be strong and get through each and every day. We don't want to lose mom. She's our world.  It scares us to think she might possibly not be here. But, we try not to think about that too much. We focus on the present day and make the best memories we can. We can't control what is about to happen. We just have to enjoy now and stick together.

  1. You're a wise young woman Lorita. When I think about how much time and energy is spent on things that really don't matter in the whole scheme of these precious lives we are living...just keep on making those memories.

    The memories...we won't be remembering if the sofa we were sitting on was leather or vinyl, if the car we were driving was a Lexus or some old beater, if the clothes we were wearing were...whatever. We'll be remembering who we were with, what we were doing, and those meaningful connections we've made.

    Thinking of you and your family today...
