I have often wondered what bonds sisters together. It is only biological? Or is it something else. Does everyone have it? Or is it something you have to work on?
I was 23 years old when we lost our mother and it's been hard not having her around, especially when times are difficult. We still have eachother even though we are far apart! I am so thankful for text messaging and facebook (something I've just started using) to keep us up to date on our daily happenings.
The day after Thanksgiving I found out that I have several brain tumors. My oldest sister Jen (on the left) flew in from Ohio and my younger sister Julie (in the middle)drove from St. George to spend a week with me before my first surgery. Huge sacrifices were made by both of them (and their husbands and children) to be with me. It was so comforting to have them close during such an uncertain time. Looking back, I am so grateful.
It's been three weeks since my first surgery. I've been through a lot and experienced many miracles and praying for a few more. One of the most important thing I've learned through this experience is to enjoy those whom you love now. Take time for the most important things in life and be happy.
Amber Hall of Amber Hall Photography took our pictures (on super short notice). I love her and thank her for it! To see more of her work go HERE.
