2. Brothers and a sister
I am left after having lost my little sister 5 years old and two brothers both 59 .
I feel abandoned and lonely. No one knows me like these siblings. The history of our lives together
Is left for me to remember without their support. I miss their voices. Their faces, their smiles, their personalities. My mother died last January. 20 days later my brother hung himself. 6 years earlier my oldest brother drowned in a river after his car crashed. He was my closest bro. We were alike in many ways. My little sister died in a train crash that also killed my father. I was 11. I feel like my life has been full of death, violent death. I am divorced and have two great kids. They are wonderful.
God has given me amazing gifts. I am grateful to be alive . I am a survivor and people tell me I am strong. Really and truly I feel weak. Tossed like a wave. What I know is that I can't dwell on their deaths. I have to keep moving forward. Thankfully I have a job that I love and great friends.
These are the gifts. My kids are a constant source of wonder and life!
I don't know why things happen, I am vulnerable and fragile yet in the face of all of this I know there is a God who gives me peace and I know my family is at peace.
