My Heart Is Breaking
After all these years you would think a person could get used to losing people they love, but not me. My heart is breaking and I don't know if I can stand it this time. My sister is dying and there is nothing any of us can do but stand by and watch. It's so unfair. You see, in her case, she is the most loving, caring, considerate person I have ever known. She is my sister-in-law but she has always been my sister. We met when we were just 16 and Giggles is my best friend in all the world. She is the one who has always insisted that we never give in, never give up, always have hope, and now she is giving up. I spent this weekend watching that beautiful lady suffer in such pain.... pain no one should ever have to endure.
This little woman looks at you with eyes of compassion and love. She is the first one to come to your side and hold you up when you're down and don't think you can make it. She is selfless and loves unconditionally. To see that smile and hear her infectious giggle will brighten even the saddest day. Now her hours are filled with the struggle to just survive one more day and I don't understand. I don't want to lose her and it scares me. I really love her..... everyone who knows her loves her.
