Remembrance Day

My son and I spent a minute yesterday in silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. He learns all about the meaning of this day at school and we spend a minute in solemn thought. I did not tell him that this day means something different and the same to me because I wanted him to have a happy day and be out sledding and playing and having his friends over to play computer games...he did these things and it was good.I, however, spent most of the day wrapped in a blanket, losing myself in movies and web space issues. Sigh, I couldn't express the thought yesterday but November 11 is/was my sister's birthday. She was my little soldier who fought her life to live and in the end died. She persevered through pain and surgeries, through all sorts of inabilities with a smile on her face and love in her heart. I miss her saucy ways and the dancing eyes of brown, her long braided hair soft and full of beauty. I miss the way she exuded love and care and her soft kisses and long talks. It is hard to lose someone but many of us have and will continue to do so ... it is nice that there is a day that has meaning for her memory where I can wrap myself in memory and happy and pain and not have to go outside and face the rest of the world.
