LoveMe Challenge, Day 15

Standard

Day #15: Something you have done right.

Being an aunt. I was the best darn aunt a child could ask for.  I was the kind of aunt who played video games and board games and card games. I taught crafts and made up games. I planned art projects. I taught my niece to ride her bike. I took them swimming, took them to the park, watched movies, built fort. I introduced them to Star Wars and then helped them build light sabers and had light saber battles. I helped them search for lost hamsters, kissed wounded knees, and smoothed wounded egos. And there was nothing else I loved in the world more than being their aunt.

My subconscious is more self-aware than I am

I sat in a room and cried for you. I missed you so much. I sobbed and sobbed and I felt the pain.

And then I woke up.

I can’t properly grieve my sister’s death while I’m awake, so apparently I’ve started doing it in my sleep.
