If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Happy Birthday

Today is February 5th my brother's birthday. He died in 1989 the way he came into this world.....in my mother's arms. We were 18 months apart and always fighting as siblings do but if anyone else touched him.......big sister was there to the rescue. He was a fiesty little fellow who, from the tender age of 11 months old was discovered that he had Sickle Cell Anemia. That didn't stop him one bit even though around each Christmas holiday, he was quite ill and always in the hospital in Galveston, where the doctors there were great to him all those years ago (1960's) They did their best though little was known about his disease.
David was my hero because no matter how aweful he felt and it was pretty bad most of the time, he didn't want to let it get him down. He always encouraged his hospital mates to hang in there, to fight no matter what.
Mom and I often think and speak about him. David was comical, hard working...when he could work, loving and sometimes as mean as a snake.....lol......but I loved him with all of my heart.
Happy Birthday little brother.......... I miss you lots..........from your big sister.
