My Little Angel Brittany

My little niece Brittany who lost her Mom at the tender age of 6 years old wrote me today.  I am always writing her poems spelling out a secret message going down.  She wrote a poem about her Mom and sent it to me.  It is precious and such a tribute to my little sister Christi that I just had to share it with you.

My Mom Christi 

Making me do my homework
Yellow is her favorite color
 
Monday is the day she goes to H.E.B.
On Tuesday she takes us to Sonic for treats
Might be watching Opera secretly
 
Cooking cookies for us all the time
Having fun with me and my brother
Reading all the books she can lay her hands on
Is always at the mall
Saving her money for new shoes
Taking me and Chris to fun places
Is always in my heart
 
Christi is always in my heart too.  She was such a big part of my life,  Here is my poem about her that I was inspired to write:
 
 
MY LITTLE SISTER CHRISTI
 
My little sister Christi was so special to me
Young and carefree in everything that you do
 
Listened to me late at night when we were small girls
I loved her dearly and she was my world
The  many late talks together
Telling each other about our secrets and dreams
Lullabys I sang to her every night before sleep
Every day filled with Barbies and games
 
She was a playmate that I could trust
I loved her dearly and that was enough
So many fun trips to the mall
Treasures full of memories that I will always keep
Excited to see her with children of her own
Rarely a frown where a smile did not grow
 
Caring and kind to all those around her
Heaven is now the place that she lives
Reaching for rainbows and stars in her eyes
I miss her so much, that I sometimes still cry
She wouldn't want us to be sad
Time is so precious don't throw it away
I know that she would want us to be happy the rest of our days
 
 
Be thankful for the time that you have.  Never go to bed angry or sad.  Reach out to those that you love.  God blessed me with Christi who now lives above.
