Her name always makes me smile

mood: reminiscent
craving: talking to my sister

While growing up I had the most amazing sisters, both of them are older than me and I always wanted to mimic their behavior.  As years went by, both got married and I longed for that special sister to always be there for me. Distance kept us apart, but not in heart.  Thank God we are a  close-knit family and my parents always taught us kids to always keep in touch, no matter how far we were.

 When our mother passed away, my dear sister Mona who lived across the states from me, always called me, every single day. Always checking up on me. I was very young when mom passed away , Mona was always so concerned that I wasn't doing well or coping.  I was lost. My sister Mona would always call me when I was feeling down.

Me and Mona... I was the little one. :)))

Like I said, we've all always been very close, but Mona was always there for me. She was the one who always checked up on her little sister, she's the one who called me everyday and worried about my well being. Forever I will be grateful for her great love for me.

When people meet Mona, they love her instantly. She is indeed, one of a kind.  Always finding the good in people. Always happy. Always just Mona.  No matter where I am in the world, you always manage to find the time to call me and I love you for that.

Mona, if you're reading this now, I want to tell you how much you mean to your little sis. Even though everything you have been though in these years, you were always positive and always had faith in God. Mona, you are my heart. You are my special sister. You are my gem.

final whisper: Thank you for being, YOU, my lovely beautiful sister.
