Never So Happy

to be woken up at 2:50 in the morning from a text.  My sister went out on a date last night.  I was so happy for her.  She called to tell me all about this "country boy" she met, and how they just talked for four hours at a local restaurant.  He is a professional plumber with a strong local company, and he used to ride bulls professionally traveling all around.  (Seriously....bulls, how freakin cool is that?)  I heard some laughter in my sister's voice.  I heard hope of the future.  She is twenty-six years old, and she needs that.  Next week will mark six months since the accident, and my BIL's birthday.  I am proud of her for taking this first step, even if there isn't another date. 

I'll take losing some sleep any day to hear that happiness in her voice again.
