My Little Sister

I was only the baby of our family until I was 2 years old and my brother Sam was born. I have been an older sister ever since and ultimately ended up being the second oldest of six children.

Ben, Constance, and Aaron (driving
me crazy of course)

I love my siblings. They drive me crazy sometimes most of the time but they are my siblings and I am pretty sure annoying my siblings is written somewhere in the job description of being a good sibling.

On March 26, 2012 my younger sister, Constance, passed away and my family has shrunk in a way I never imagined it would.

It is amazing how your life can change in such a dramatic way but still stay so much the same. I still had classes, homework, and tests. I still have work. I still have to worry about all the little things. You would expect littler things not to bother you anymore after a loss but they do, I just sometimes wonder why I care.

Sometimes my loss doesn't seem real. Sometimes it seems like I never had a younger sister and that this weight on my heart has magically appeared. When all is said and done, I miss her and I wish she was here with me even though I know that she is in a better place.
