And so it goes....

On Friday my little sister lost her baby. She woke in the night to her water breaking, far too early, and the wee heart was born. It has been a hard time for her and Pernell and the kids. Although we are not so very close, it is still hard to know that she is hurting and that there is nothing I can do to rectify the situation. I have often caused her emotional pain and even the occasional physical pain (she will happily show you the scars), but it hurts me that I can't fix this. I am thankful that she is surrounded by such a wonderful community of friends and family that can help her to get through this. She has such a good outlook and wrote beautifully of her feelings just the other day. Ok, so I just read her blog again and she is venting. The second post down is her beautiful piece.

As far as our family goes, we are in the middle of spring break. Karen and her kids came in to the city on Sunday and we spent the last few days taking in as many activities as we could. They just left this afternoon, and the house seems so empty and lonely.

I never realized she was your sister!! It's all coming together now!!! I read her blog sometimes because I know how close her and Lori were when they were living close by. Small world!

That is a beautiful post - and the other one - well, that is certainly understandable.
