Sisters, Sisters, there were never such devoted sisters….
I got to go to Longview with the incomparable Izzybella Saturday. While we were sitting at Waffle House, where we’d stopped for a cheap yet surprisingly delicious breakfast, I suddenly felt that our sister Alicia was sitting right beside me. I mean, I could feel her warmth. Like she was leaning against my right arm, filling me with her love. It was amazing.
I miss her. I keep a picture of her on my desk at work, and look at it every day. And when Izzy and I have gotten together lately, we’ve both felt that she’s been with us.
The overarching theme of the book Izzy and I are writing is the importance of family. I think Alicia approves, and is reminding us that she’s an important part of our family.
I love you, sister mine.
