I am now a widow, having laid my last kiss on my husbands brow after he died to say goodbye. Since then I have found an old note he wrote me apologizing for his meanness laying on my floor and two gold coins under my blankets, his way of saying he was sorry and goodbye. I have buried my ex husband, my baby son, my grown son, my mom and now my husband and I wish to bury no more, but life does not work that way. I have birthed 3 children and have 3 more wonderful children from my last marriage. I have 4 living children and a granddaughter I adore and I am in the process of finding me. I have no idea who I am but I have discovered I am loved and I never knew that before and it makes me smile...

My Sister Suzie

Rate: 8 Flag

I received a call this morning about 4;45 from my sister Suzie who has been a regular here for some time and got me started at OS.

She was calling to let me know our mom had fallen yet again at the home she is at and that this time she had broken her neck. My sister has been with mom all night and is tired and I can't get out of work to go help her and I just wanted her to know how much she is appreciated when she gets home and can sit at the computer again.

My sister has been raising us her siblings since she was about 10 I think. She has always been the mom and has given up much to be there for us. I am 2 years younger and then another sister three years younger and two brothers 5 and 6 years younger I think. See I think but Suzie she knows she always knows the right answers, the right thing to do, what to say, how to act. My sister Suzie is an incredible sister and I am proud of her.

She moved up here when her and her husband could have moved anywhere but here to help take care of mom before mom knew she needed taken care of. She was the one mom was always mad at blamed for everything and yet my sister was always there for her taking her to dr visits picking up meds driving her everywhere. Sitting with her at the hospital when needed broken hip, everything, everytime. My sister also sat with our Grandma and Grandpa as they died and was close when our dad died even though he was never a "dad" to any of us.

She is an incredible woman and mother and wife and friend and sister and I know she will be there for our mom in her last days and as mom finally sees her mom again and my son Toddy and will finally be at peace and I couldn't love my sister more for what she has done for this family and for our mother and I just needed her to know that. I LOVE YOU SIS!

I forgot to add an incredible Grandma and Aunt as well.
They all love her so much and don't know what they would do without her!!!!!!
I think your message came through loud and clear and I know your sis will be lifted up and encouraged when she gets the chance to read this. Well done!
Torman thank you for the support. I really want her to know how much she is appreciated and that I know how hard this is for her. I am glad it sounds like what I meant it to be, a tribute to a wonderful sister.
Your sister is incredible, Lunchlady. And you are a great sister for telling her so!
Very touching. Nice shout-out to Sis!
Ashkw, thanks I wish I was a bit better of a sister but I guess we do what we can.
Spotted mind, thanks I just need her to know ya know?
Sorry about your Mom and your Sister sounds like a saint. Good luck to you all!
Hi Scanner thanks for stopping by. I have had a rough day but not near as rough as my sister. My daughter is on her way up from the Bay Area and my sisters daughter is there and I will go up tommorrow hopefully there will still be time tommorrow as it looks like my moms time may have finally come and there is not much left they can do. We have heard this before but I think this time it may be the end and I have been trying hard to not think about it at work but now work is done and tears are near ........
What a wonderful tribute to your sister! Sister's are so special, yours seem a nothc above. i wish I had one right now. I'm sure she appreciates you too Sis!
Kellylark, I don't know what I would do without her! I just wanted her to know that. For all she's done and been and is.
LL2..Suzi is lucky to have you too! I am sure she will go her whole life wanting to take care of you, and you her. Your Mom maybe gave all she could emotionally to you guys, I feel how much you love her, I don't took me till I was in my 40's to realize my Mom loved me the best way she knew how..we model our behavior for a reason. There are faults and reasons for faults in all of us...we have to sift through and keep the good stuff..if this is her Time, pray for God to comfort and befriend her, on her journey home. Let me know how you are..ok?
