This picture was taken at our Grandmother and Pop Bowling's. Dayna is the baby in this picture.
Today, would have been my sister, Dayna's 38th birthday. She was tragically killed at age 17 (April 14, 1989). My post today is a tribute to an awesome baby sister.
When Dayna was born, I was five years old. I was extremely upset to get another sister. I already had one and my parents and God knew I wanted a brother. I remember crying and being upset with my parents.
In the years that followed, Dayna became quite close to both Courtney and I. I am the oldest and Courtney is the middle sister. Dayna soon became the glue that held Courtney and I together. She was always positive and looked for the good in everyone. Courtney and I on the other hand fought terribly through the years. Dayna always tried to keep peace between us.
When Dayna died, both Courtney and I made a commitment to each other: NOTHING or NO ONE would ever come between us. We also committed to use Dayna's death to help others. Over the years, we have used every opportunity to share with others the affects of "one bad choice." Dayna allowed someone to drive her car. That person made a wrong choice and it cost Dayna's life and the lives of two others.
Dayna has given Courtney and I a gift that many others do not have in their lives. We share a bond united in the heart of our Heavenly Father. We long for day when we are united with our Heavenly Father and reunited with our precious Dayna.
In Dayna's memory, I ask each of you to pray about the relationship you have with your siblings. You may not have a chance tomorrow to make the changes you need to make. In a fleeting second, your world, as you know it could be in a tailspin. Share your heart with those important to you. Express how much you love them and put the past in the past. The past can not be changed. The present is yours. The future may not look as you know it, today. Begin anew!
