Today was a beautiful day in southcentral PA. The sun finally came out, most of the snow has melted, my spring bulbs are beginning to bud and it's my sister's birthday. And even if my sister isn't here to celebrate her special day - I did - by thinking of her all day, remembering all the wonderful times we spent together and missing her more than I've let on to my family. They think I crawled under the covers for 3 hours because I had a headache - but I needed to escape the sunshine, the brightness of the day. The day started out ok but after going to a meeting to find out why there are elevated cancer cases on the campus of the college our youngest son has chosen to attend in the Fall and listening to an epidemiologist talk about cancer deaths in young people and cancer clusters - I needed to escape - to my bed - and to pull the covers over my head and sleep. I use sleep as an escape - from life sometimes - and today was one of those days.
But despite my 3 hour 'nap' I did celebrate my sister - I love you Lynn.
