3.9.11

Sometimes I will close my eyes and take a deep breath and try to catch a little bit of Merin. Wishful or hopeful that I might be able to somehow will my sister to be close to us. This summer was so beautiful and we were lucky to be able to keep busy and stay close to family, but inevitably there were heartbreaking moments. Times when the lack of Merin and Mike were too obvious, and still not right. As we celebrated my youngest brothers wedding and welcomed a new sister to the family I missed Merin and felt her near at the same time. As we walked around Worly, a small and enchanted Island, I wished so badly she and Mike were there with us. Sometimes I find myself looking into others lives and wishing for their lack of my hurt. But that is crazy. We all have our own pain and struggles. I think of what my mom wrote..."When we love we hurt." It's so true. I love and miss my sister everyday.
