It's May, which means it's National Brain Cancer Awareness Month. And once again I will be hosting #GreyForMissy, a day to wear grey (or gray if you rather) in memory of my sweet baby sister, and in honor and support of all those impacted by brain cancer, on Wednesday, May 18th.
Any maybe that's how we survive it all. Again and again, I wonder how we move forward. How we live without her here. And I guess the answer is we let each day pass. And slowly, they add up to this... to over three years. And every single day I miss her. I miss her laugh and I miss her smile. I miss her sass and her ability to bring out the best in others. I miss seeing her with Henry and Cici, seeing her with me and Boo, Nick and Chris, Mom and Dad. I miss every single thing about her. Every single day.
I am once again moving the official day for #GreyForMissy off of it's original May 8th date. The day is hard for me, and I need it to be on a day when I have nothing else really going on, so this year the official #GreyForMissy post will be on Wednesday, May 18th. If that day does not work for you, or you would rather wear grey on a different day, that's fine. Still email me or tag your pictures on any social media site with #GreyForMissy or #GrayForMissy between now and then and I will save them for the post on the 18th. Please feel free to share this post with others, and please consider wearing gray this month in memory of our sweet Melissa.
