I have a special needs sister, who’s name is Gussie. Gussie is as cute as she can be. She loves music, even though she wears herself out trying to sing every part of the song and dance at the same time. Gussie is 40 years old, but she is very much a baby at heart. She doesn’t say very many words, but she shows you how much she loves you with little pinches on the back of your arm, just above the elbow. She doesn’t mean to hurt you at all, but its her way of getting your attention.
I miss Gussie so much more this year.
I believe it is more than usual, because Aunt Hattie Sibley isn’t here this year. You see, God took Aunt Hattie home a few months ago. Aunt Hattie loved everybody with all of her heart, but she would talk to me about Gussie every single year. Gussie was in a long term care home in Albany, Georgia, but she was moved to another home that is five hours away from me. I live in Alabama and I’ve been seeking a long term facility here. Its difficult to have to stay close to home this year to care for the grands, and Gussie is so far away. She is not secondary in my life. She is loved and she is missed, especially at Christmas Time.
If you have a very special loved one who lives far away, please share your story and tell me how you’re dealing with it this year.
Keep your loved ones in your heart and on your mind at Christmas Time.
