Losing your Sister has been hard, I know from experience. I lost my Big Brother not long ago. But I am sure she would not want you feeling like this.

I too am always battling these feelings you are experiencing, but then my Mother always clears my head by saying, "You know your Brother would not want you feeling this way at Christmas. He would want you happy and cheerful and enjoying your life." And as hard as that is sometimes, it's a choice we must all make in life. Enjoying our lives and remaining happy even though we have lost someone dear to us is not dishonoring them or dismissing the feeling we have, it's about us continuing to live and enjoy OUR lives in their honor. That's how I am living my life. It's a choice I had to make. And it's a choice you must make. I recommend you do some cooking and preparing just as she did. Do it in her honor!! Make her proud of you! I'm sorry you are hurting.
