Life was good for a while.  Maybe even great!  I continued to find solace in the boy, in his family, in time spent with a family who was not over their head in grief.  Our grand plans to spend even more time together over Christmas break were ruined by a blizzard.  For Valentine's day I received flowers from not only the boy, but also from his brother (remember....the one I was betrothed to)...yellow carnations.  The card read, "Hey Sis, thank you for making my little brother so happy."

Those boys, who I had been warned to stay away from, had caught me and given me a wonderful gift of happiness.


  1. I wondered what the brother thought of you and the boy. I'm glad he was able to see you as "Sis."
