It's time to hide

I am sorry I have sort of disappeared, and I apologize in advance for the coming week. You see my sweet sister Angela's 34th birthday will have been on the 18th next week, and I am finding it a bit difficult to face. I am still walking, and as soon as I am feeling a bit better I will definitely be back. I just need to go to ground (in the words of my own sister) until this passes. I love you all and will be back soon.

Anna, I cannot tell you how sad I was to hear about Angie.

I know from losing my father, who was my superhero, how difficult birthdays, Christmas and anniversaries are, and how tension-filled are the days leading up to them.

But I promise you, Anna, that one day, sometime in the future, she will go from being in your head all the time to being in your heart all the time. It won't mean you will think about her any less, but it will be different. You will be able to think of her without feeling the terrible sadness that you do now, and you will be able to continue with your life in the way you know she would have wanted you to.

I hope the comments from people who 'knew' Angie have cheered you a little, and I will continue to pray for comfort for you and your family.

I nearly cried when I saw that picture, and new immediatly what you were posting about. I've been feeling really sad about this too, esp. since our b-days were so close together and we always talked about the oddities of being born under the Aquarius sign. :)

If I were nearby I'd give you a hug.

Oh Anna, I wish there was something I could do for you. Sending thoughts and prayers your way.
