This week I’m celebrating my sister.
Yesterday would have been Charmaine’s birthday. She would have been 28. She passed away in December of 2010.
While she should have had many more years ahead of her, I can see how her life was a full one.
She was a mother, daughter, sister, wife, friend, granddaughter, niece, aunt, and just in general a great human being.
I am reminded of her in the simple things. In happy moments, I like to think she’s there sharing it with me.
I know she wouldn’t want me to be sad.
By celebrating Charmaine, I’m celebrating life and love.
What are you celebrating this week?
