Today I received this card from my sister Laura with a message of encouragement for my recovery. But the words on the front of the card go both ways. Today is her birthday, and I wish we lived close enough to celebrate together.
She is one of my older sisters, and the one who also has breast cancer. She’s been such a great support for me every step of my cancer ordeal, and I’m beyond grateful for her. Not only because she’s been a sounding board for me lately but also because she’s a role model for gratitude. She’s the person who is always optimistic and always sees the best in people.
Laura is giving, kind, and has a gentle soul. I’m thankful to have her in my life.
