On this last day of the challenge, again, I want to thank Amy (at The World Is A Book…) for inviting me to participate the “3 Days, 3 Quotes” challenge — post a quote each day for 3 days and nominate 3 new bloggers each day to take part.
Having a sister is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of. You know whatever you do, they’ll still be there. ~Amy Li
In 2002, a year after we lost both of our parents, my sister Karin was diagnosed with breast cancer. The first thing she said to me was: “I am so grateful that I wasn’t diagnosed with cancer when our parents were still alive. Can you imagine how mom would take the news?” The second thing she said to me was: “If every family has to have a victim of cancer, I am glad it is me instead of you or Yvonne.”
Karin passed away in 2013, but I know she is with us, still.
