Vicki is my awesome older sister, by two years.
She was the first one to go to middle school,
First to suffer through high school (😊),
First to get a job,
And the first to get married.
I was never EVER jealous of her,
Because I would never want to be the “first” to try anything.
I have this pretty funny t-shirt that says,
” I’m a leader, NOT a follower. Except if we’re in a dark place….then screw it! You’re going first.”
We are so blessed by those who have already BEEN to the place where we now find ourselves.
Sometimes these places are incredibly scary,
Just plain heartbreaking.
Two years ago, my church began implementing Griefshare.
It’s basically a support group for those who’ve lost a loved one through death.
I HATE going, initially.
Arms crossed, I pouted and sulked in my little chair for the first couple times.
And at first, I wasn’t sure why I felt that way…
But I guess I really didn’t want THIS to be my story.
