Today

Today I need thoughts.

Today I need prayers.

Today I wish my brain could go on vacation and not think about the things going on.

One of my favorite people in the world is having yet another surgery today. She was born into a life that requires multiple surgeries, no matter what we do to prevent it.

She is the fighter I wish to be.

She is the strength that tells me that I can handle my small battles day to day because she handles more.

She is the person I teach my children to be like. The ability to have life push you down, sometimes daily, and getting back up anyway.

She is the person that taught me patience and compassion. She is the person I tried to be for many many years.

The one I wanted to hang out with and constantly annoyed her friends because I thought it was fun.

She is the person that I can’t live without. She is the person I call when I need to talk. She is the person I call when I am too scared to tell our parents things.

She is my sister.

And we need your thoughts today.
