~By Blood Or By Choice~
I have been flying high
on cloud 9 all day
My spirits are soaring
in many different ways
My sister has been sick
with leukemia for over a year
She's had her stem cell transplant
and now she cries a bloody tear
She took a sharp turn for the worst
and became very ill
When she does get better
it will be from God's good will
She is showing signs of improvement
her progress has been slow
With every little step forward
my faith in God continues to grow
I know she will survive
she'll be a fighter til the end
By blood she is my sister
by choice she is my friend


Author's Notes:
To my sister Paula
I love You 
I can't wait to be able to give you a big hug real soon

Its hard to tell someone that It will be okay, because that is up to God and your sister.  I pray though, that it will be okay- my thoughts are with you.


Love, Rin

I pray Paula will make a speedy recovery.

God is still in the business of miracles.

Tracy, this is simply a beautiful dedication to your sister. I know how anxious you have been for her, and I am elated that she is doing so well. I am sure Paula will love to read this once she is further along in her recovery. And I'm sure she's going to be wanting that big hug from her baby sister too. Keep smiling, my friend........Love ya...lots of hugs..........Karen

Wow, Tracy, give her a big hug from her North Carolina sister, too! This is a great re-confirmation in MY faith, as well!

Wonderfully done, and this is something I think Paula would treasure...when you can...give her a copy of this...

Love you guys so much!
