Over the time that my family was all home from work and school these past few weeks I managed to get a little journaling time in. This journal page is all about my sister. Over the top of her head it says "There is always a spark inside of her". She is the strongest lady I know. When life hits her hard, she just gets back up and carries on. She always lands on her feet again and again.
I find that many of my poems and journal pages are about her. She has been a strong influence in my life and I have always longed to be near her. Right now we live one Province away from each other and do not get to visit often. I wish that we lived in the same town, it would make life so much more pleasant.
If you have been following my blog you know that she was in a car accident last March of 2012. A drunk driver hit her. She is still recovering and the doctors do not know if/when she will be able to return to work. She has raised/and is in the process of raising 5 kids, her youngest is 8 and her oldest is I think 26. She has raised each of them mostly as a single mom. While working full-time she managed to get her Bachelor's degree in Social Work/Criminology (and did I mention she's practically a single Mom?)
I am thankful that God gave me her as my sister.
Well, I hope you are all having a wonderful week. May God bless you richly.
Hugs and blessings
