This took me hours to write....

I started and stopped this post over and over again in my head.  I want to write this, but I don't.

I wonder if this day will always be a difficult day.  I suppose it will.

Today is July 23rd, you see.

This is Jean-Christine's birthday.

I would like to be able to pick up the phone and call and say "Happy Birthday Jean!  Love You!"

But I can't.

I don't get to have that phone call with the somewhat plaintive, sing-song sounding "hi Sister-bee" that was the way Jean always seemed to start conversations.

I think of that "Hi Sister-bee" often.  I really miss it.

Wherever you are today Jean- looking on us- Sister-bee says Happy Birthday and I love you.

and I miss you.
