Another Year

Happy Birthday to the best big sister a girl could ever have.

I think my way of dealing with your birthday this year was to ignore it. I've kept myself distracted with going through boxes of paperwork and working on my budget for the year. Busy work.

And it helped.

But I did have to hold back the tears as I made your birthday cake. And I had to hold them back again as I ate my piece of that cake.

This year was low key and I don't have anything especially poignant to say, but do know that I love you dearly. And I miss you more than I can ever express.

No more holding the tears back now.

Mom misses her too.
