Bittersweet Sentiments

Good day my crafty Gal Pals, I write with a heavy heart, my Mother will be losing her 3rd sister this year. She has lost a sister every two years now. My mother is the second oldest of 11 children, 6 girls and 4 boys. My aunt B who is just a couple years younger than my mother, was given 4 to 6 weeks to live due to a fatal illness; she has cancer throughout her body and has decided to not do any further treatment. I guess I don’t blame her. So I have been scratching my brain as to what I should say to someone who has been given this death sentence, so I wrote a 2 page letter hoping NOT to ONE. Depress the snot out of her and TWO. To say what I want to say before she is no longer with us, and a P.S. to say “Maybe you can come back next time as a bird and crap on those heads you were not able to in this life…;0)” I will even put this in an envelope with a stamp and mail it to her home. Novel Idea huh?? Computers and e-mail have made communication all seem so impersonal anymore, it’s not difficult to just forward someone else’s idea with a ditto at the bottom. You know all those infamous chain letters we get and glance thru. This letter is just for her…

I will miss you aunt B.

So in reflection, at least those of us who think we are too busy to say to those who mean a lot to us, we should take note, and express what we want to and need to say, cuz’ ya never know when it will be too late.

I also want to send out good wishes to First Mate Tia who is a dear friend to my BFF Moon Sister. Moon colored pieces of her hair pink in honor of Tia. You’re in my prayers First mate!

Till next time my crafty gal pals, Have a good one!
