Today is my sister's birthday. T, Daddy, and I are celebrating my making one of her favorite recipes-grits dip with Doritos! T will also be enjoying a cupcake. I will not be enjoying a cupcake because I am pretty sure the Doritos will do me in completely! We are reading this story today. Though it was not written about my sister, it might as well have been! T loves it. He talks about his Nina and how she is in Heaven. He asks if he can go there. I tell him no, but that she is watching over him. He said ok and smiled.
Aunt Nina and Her Nephews and Nieces by Brandenberg, is a beautiful story about an aunt, who does not have children of her own. She spoils her nieces and nephews. They love her so much. The book is beautiful. It reminds me so much of the love my sister had for my little guy and my niece, A. It also reminds me of the love they still have for her. It is immeasurable!
I miss her today, but then again, I miss her everyday.
