To our Novel Girl Followers and my Dear Novel Girls,
After reading my post, you'll understand why I can't post on topic again this week.
Two weeks is a long time to watch someone you love with all your heart slowly slip away. My baby sister, Melanie, as my oldest son posted on his FB page, is now "having fun riding on the wings of angels." A lovely thought for one who so enjoyed the sensation of the wind against her face - on horseback, on skis, at the beach, on the soccer field - anywhere, as long as it was outdoors.
Can't you just see her now riding bareback on a solid white steed, faster than she ever imagined possible here on earth, with her soft curls swirling all around her head? I believe she's doing that right now in Heaven.
Melanie was only 39-years-old when she left her earthly body to join the Heavenly Host of Angels. As you can see from her high-school graduation picture, just 20 years ago, she has the smile of an angel.
I love you, my dear baby sister. You are finally at perfect peace with your Prince of Peace.
Thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers about Melanie. There is no greater gift.
