My heart is broken

by Lisa

I lost my only sister February 2, 2008, she was 42 years old. She was killed in a car accident by an irresponsible other dirver who plowed into her car that carried, her, her husband and at the time, 12 yr. old daughter. The irresponsible driver was killed instantly as was my sister. My niece was critically injured but survived her injuries and is now a beautiful 16 yr. old woman. My sister was killed instantly, her spine breaking and heart being ripped apart, I believe she died to save my niece. My brother in law walked away with nary a scratch. He remarried 22 months after my sister's death. She would have wanted him to be happy but it was just too soon. I miss her! She was my closest friend in the world. I love my husband but there are thing that I just could discuss with my sis that I can't discuss the same way with others, including my husband. My parents are devastated and I don't think i will ever get them back as normal parents. I wish to God it was different but we never know when it will be our time. I live every day for each day and do not put off tomorrow what I could do today!

I know mine was/is too


If there is ANY benefit to grief it would be that we never view life as we did before. We understand that it can be taken away in the blink of an eye. It takes time to actually be able to live the new life that we are forced to live, We spend quite a while lost and unsure which way to turn, what direction to go in. The past haunts us but forces us forward ever so slowly. It actually hurts to live after grief. But we become stronger as time passes and have an understanding that few have. I may have a day where I do not feel like doing anything and thats o.k but I take the next day and try to make it count. Count for something because none of us really know what time that we have left. When I stand before the unknown I want to be able to say yes I did life life to the fullest. And it just takes some courage to be able to do that. I hope the same for you...
