Two years later

Me Lisa and a beer

Another year gone by. Yesterday marked the second anniversary of my oldest sister, Lisa, passing away. We did not spend he day wailing or gnashing our teeth. Instead, those of us who could make it joined my parents for a nice lunch at home, laughed at my adorable nephew and neice, and enjoyed each other’s company.

I had planned to write more about reflection and family and all that, but it was more important to just get together and spend the time away from the hustle and bustle of regular life. No reflection necessary, just appreciation of what we have now.

I love my family, and wish I got to see them more frequently. But at least I can enjoy the times I do.
