I have been going through some old photos. I need to do that once in a while to remember how blessed I have been throughout my life. This photo is of my oldest sister. I didn't just want to be like her, I wanted to be her. She was always nice to me even though I was almost 10 years younger than her. This particular shot is one of my very favorites. It was taken after we returned home from a beauty pageant. She didn’t win. That was great tragedy in my opinion. After all, she was the most beautiful girl there. She would be 48 today. I always thought she would live forever. She didn’t. She died almost 10 years ago. I still miss her and our late night phone calls.
