Atty's Attic

My attic is dusty and has a plethora of junk in it. I must say it's a fun place to hang out and look at what's rolling around in my head. If you don't mind the dust, I'd love to have you.

Things I should have said to my sister before she passed away.

Things I should have said to my sister before she passed away.


You already know I love you. That’s a given. You know the family loves you and we’re sad you’re leaving us, but what you’re leaving us for- is awesome!

I don’t want you to be scared. You had a rough life, rough childhood, rough marriage, rough addiction that stole everything from you. But what it didn’t steal was our love. No matter what you went through you always knew where home was. And even though you didn’t always come back, you knew in your heart we were there.

So now you’re going to a new home. Stop and think about all that you’ve seen here on Earth, from the Rocky Mountains to the desert, the beauty was all around. And although you have seen more than your fair share of the ugliness of mankind, you will never have to see that again.

Years ago when you came back to us you worked hard to become a new person. God took you in, cleaned you up, and started you on a brand new life. And even though that old life eventually caught up with you, it couldn’t keep you away from God’s promise.

So now that you’re leaving your friends and family behind, you’ll be welcomed to a new family. And the friend that was with you in your darkest times, the friend that you begged to rescue you, the friend that held you when no one else was around, he will be there. Jesus will welcome you into Heaven and will wipe your tears away.

Dad will be there too. I know you missed him, I know on Earth he stopped remembering you, but what Alzheimer’s ate away, God restored. Dad will walk you around and show you a world you can’t even fathom. In the Bible it says there are oceans, rivers, hills, mountains, everything we have on Earth is in Heaven, it’s beauty amplified a thousand times. Colors your earthly mind can’t comprehend, smells, tastes, all of it will be new. And on top of that you’ll get a new body, a perfected body. New teeth, we all know you need those, new boobs, cause we both can agree yours down here were too big, hehehe, and new organs which will never fail you.

You’ll also get a new home. Jesus says He goes to prepare a place for us. In His Father’s house there are many mansions – treasures in Heaven. Your treasure box may not be as full as it could’ve been, but at least you’ll be there. No more suffering. No more heartache. No more pain. You’ll finally be free. You’ll be free. So it’s okay to let go. It’s okay to relax and let Jesus take you. We love you and will see you later.

Earth is the only hell you’ll ever see. It’s time to go home.
