Firsts and Lasts ...

I haven't posted a lot since I have returned and today is the reason why. 

Have you ever contemplated firsts and lasts? Its a funny thing. The first time you experience something you know you are experiencing it, but you never know when the last time is. 

Today is 11/11. Growing up 11/11 always meant something special to my family. It is my sister's birthday... She was once 11 on the 11th day of the 11th month ... It was pretty cool! November 11th 2013 was the last birthday I spent with her. But I didn't know it. (You can read here and here for that story... my sister passed away earlier this year from a kidney disease) November 11, 2014 ... well its the first birthday without her. And I'm very aware of it. 



Kerry (Kerks) Happy Birthday ... I know you are smiling down on me. I miss you, mum and dad miss you, Kar, Paul and the kiddos miss you and your fiancé ... well he's a mess without you. Everytime my clock strikes 11:11, Ill know its you and everytime I look at your ring around my neck, Ill feel you! My angel, Rest in perfect Peace. 

I'll catch myself soon guys :)

Have a blessed 11/11 ... it truly is a special date :)
