An award to Cherish

I want to acknowledge my dear friend Laurie who I met through the tragic loss of my sister. I lost Mary, but gained Laurie....

We share the loss together and with that it cuts the pain in half. We keep Mary alive through the shared memories and words of Love for Mary's lost life. Her soul has moved on and lives around us, guiding us through the pain, giving us hope that life after death is a beautiful place eternally. With that faith, we can keeping living as we know it and loving as we've never loved before and know that we will be together again someday when our time has come.

In the meantime, we can live, love and laugh and be grateful for all that we have, even all that we lost, because we had it! I'm a stronger, more spiritual person today because of my losses and for that I am grateful!

I accept this award with all my heart, it was given to me by my very special friend, Laurie! My sister through my sister..... Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Mary is with us everywhere, everyday... here's a picture I captured outside my window where she has made a home by me to love and comfort me day by day:
