The letter


 I found a letter from you today. It made me happy, it made me sad. 

I miss you so very much.

Most of all it took away the distance if only for a little while.  I will forever treasure the notes, cards and letters we shared.

Especially now, it is fall that is when we talked the most.  Gardening was done and all the fall fun was about to happen. 
We had time for each other.


As some of you know we are down sizing. Now, downsizing and moving are completely different.  When you move, you pack up your belongings and 'move' them.  When down sizing you pack up your belongings and take them to goodwill!  Down sizing means going through everything one piece at a time, do you want it? need it? Is it for trash day or donate. It has been amazingly hard for me.
So today, still going through things I came across a letter from my sister, who has passed away from brain cancer. For awhile she was back, for awhile I was spending time with her, I could hear her voice through the letter. 


  1. So sorry about your sister, but you have a wonderful keepsake.

    I feel for you, I am in the process of downsizing also. I'm not sure where, when I move or go, but I will be ready.

    Have a great weekend. Happy sorting.

  2. Nonie, those we love are always with us and this letter from your sweet sister just made you both closer. How lovely.
