In Memory of Cindy

My sister should be celebrating her birthday today with our parents, her husband, and her two wonderful boys.  Instead, breast cancer stole her away from all of us last December.  She was one of the most generous, caring, drop-everything-to-help-you person, so I know she would be happy knowing this card was being sent to MD Anderson as part of Splitcoast's Hope You Can Cling To card drive.


To celebrate her birthday, I'd like to ask you to go tell someone you love them, be it your husband, your child, your dog, your cat, your brother, your niece, your aunt, your best friend, your second-cousin-once-removed, or your sister. 

Because you never know when life will be too short.

Thank you for the poignant reminder, Meg. This card is striking and beautiful. Your sister would be so proud of you. (your post label is oh so appropriate)

Thinking of you on this day.

Hi Meg! This is an absolutely beautiful card. Cancer is horrible and devastates so many families. I am a cancer survivor (I had Hodgkin's Disease back in 2005), and I know what a battle it can be. I've watched many people who fought cancer alongside of me and their families lose the battle, and so my heart goes out to you and your family. Take comfort in knowing that others know the struggle and wish you the absolute best during these tough times. <3

This post really made me think about my sister and I and how we don't really talk much anymore. Maybe I'll email her tonight.
