Race for the Cure

Ok so we went to the Susan G Komen Spaghetti fund raiser tonight. Then a trip to our local craft shop. Where I bought several pink boa's and some hair things. I am going to be one flashy lady. I need to find joy in tomorrow. This is a healing for me and I find myself fighting to hold back tears for my sister Patty that I lost 7 years ago. My sister and I were 11 months and 2 weeks apart in age. We shared everything growing up even early childhood school classes until they decided we needed to be split up. As adults we lead very different lives, When she found out she had a lump in her breast I was one of her first phone calls. Even with all the time apart she knew she could count on me to be there to help her. After all isn't that what sisters/family are for. She died in my bedroom with me by her side. Letting go isn't easy, I suppose it isn't supposed to be either. Healing takes a long time, it comes and goes with the wind, sometimes your ok and other times you just want to cry.

We will have to post some pictures after the day is done.
