Memories for MOM

I spoke to Momma today.

She was crying for you. She was talking about missing her little Mary. She cried for some signs to know you are okay. Please do what you can!

During her cries, she was talking about us at Disneyland and going through "It's a Small world" and loving Disneyland.

I had to run home and post these pictures of that time she cried about!

She mentioned LoJolla Beach, California too.

So many memories..........
How interesting that she mentioned these two particular times in our life and I happened to have them scanned to share.

This seems to be the era to remember. . . . .
I was talking to my sister Lisa on Sunday, reminissing about life with Mary in Long Beach, California. How close we were and the things we would do.

How we would hide in the closet when we got scared. We would get ALL our stuffed animals, huddle close together and sing "Jesus Loves Me" & "Cumbyah my Lord" ~ songs we learned in Sunday School.

As we were talking, the biggest brightest red cardinal flew into the tree just 5 feet in front of me. I was speechless. Then a female cardinal followed right behind. I just stared at the beautiful birds so close to me and screeled with delight in Lisa's ear. Before I finished admiring or even wondering if they were real, they were gone!

Oh Mary, so beautiful, so sweet & so fast. Just a flash, that's all I got.

Life is like that too: Beautiful * Sweet * Fast!

Momma misses you Mary ~ We all miss you!

This brings tears to my eyes. It's written from the heart and so full of emotion- simply wonderful. And then to find out about the cardinals appearing as you spoke to Lisa- well, it takes my breath away.
