*It's Been A Year*

It's been one whole year since my world was turned upside down.
It's been 12 months since I got one of the worst phone calls of my life.
And it's been 365 entire days since I almost lost one of my very best friends in the world.

One year ago I blogged this entry.

Today, my baby sister is doing better. Physically she has 'mostly' recovered from the accident that very likely should have killed her. A few bumps in the road here and there but overall, she's come a very long way. Emotionally, I'm not really sure. And I'm not-sure enough to not go into it on here.

But it didn't kill her. And I thank the higher powers that be every day that she was given another chance at life. I'm not sure I could have recovered if I lost her.

I'm thankful for so many things that came from that accident. I'm even more thankful for my siblings and try so hard to not take it for granted that I have them. I'm thankful for the lesson that everyone around me learned about drunk driving.

I'm thankful that my baby sister is alive.

  1. Siblings are a blessing. I hope your sister is doing well today. Enjoy every minute you can with them because you just never know.
    Sadily I've lost both of my siblings. It's been almost a year today since my baby brother left this world way to young. Losing my brothers has taught me a lot about life. I hold my love ones a little tighter these days and I never forget to tell them "I love them". Wish I would have done more with my brothers.
