Happy Birthday Asti

apollina baker

This is the fourth year I've celebrated my sister's birthday here on the blog with a writing of hers. We are blessed to have books filled with the poems and stories she wrote as a teenager.  She died 12 years ago, just about a month after her 19th birthday.  

I wish we were together today Ast, talking about whatever amazing thing you'd be doing now.  I miss you, I love you, happy birthday.



I am worried about college, about relationships, about friendships, scholarships, having no money.  About my relationship with my father, sisters and mother.

But deep down I know I shouldn't worry. 

For my Father in Heaven knows what his children need and as a child of Christ, He will take care of me and keep my head above the horrendous waves.
