Red, White and oh, so Blue

To my sisters:

I miss you so much. So much more today than any other day. Having you both gone on this day, this day that was the bestest, funnest day for us the past 10 years was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I can handle one of you living far away, but 2 is too much. There should be a rule that you have to take turns.

I feel like Jo in Little Women. Why does everything have to change? Why can't it just be the same? I know you both have your own wild adventures to experience. Your own homes and families to grow, your own dreams and passions to pursue. But you are my little sisters, and for 27 years - with a few minor interruptions - we could call, or meet or see each other whenever we wanted And now you are both gone. And it is too much. Too much today. I am sure I will get used to it, and I will get busy and there will be little time for tears (I am being over dramatic here I know, believe me I know) but today I am tired and nostalgic so there is no stopping them.... today, without you here, my heart hurts. There is no other way to say it.


  1. I miss you! Don't be sad (yeah that helps i'm sure) but I miss you too! Today I put on You've Got Mail while I unpacked just because I knew you do it too and it reminded me of you!

  2. i know i am not a great substitute but you'll be getting me soon. hope it can help easy the pain. :)

  3. oh thanks! i miss you gals too. it was not the same here without everyone.:( love ya though

  4. Oh, I'm SO sorry you are feeling blue - and I completely understand! I am like Jo too.. and when my sis didn't live here and we used to have to say our goodbyes and only be able to share long distance, it KILLED me - I missed her soooooo bad. Ten years ago she moved to my town and it has been bliss ever since! Hope you are feeling better today.

  5. So sorry you are having a blue day.
    I hope you feel better soon.

  6. We had a great time at your house and we enjoyed how it was low key.

    I missed the rest of my family, but I did enjoy the low country boil. It was a good celebration of fun, friends, food & most of all freedom.

  7. Jeru.... it hurts, doesn't it? And nothing we say from our hearts will make you hurt any less. I'm hoping by now you're feeling better. Nancy


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
