Redwinged Blackbird







I loved being your sister Mary!



I was so proud of you. You always made me laugh & smile. It wasn't until the end that you made me cry. It wasn't even you, it was the evil disease & the bad circumstances Mary! I know it wasn't you.

I sure hope you are laughing up there... I know you are laughing at me and my feelings of insanity with all these birds and the coincidneces. It all seems so surreal & I think I'm going crazy.
BTW: I see the new bird that's been brought my way ~The RedWinged Blackbird which if you google it, we can all see that its from Wisconsin. He is in my backyard and soooo beautiful..... you were born in Wisconsin sis. What on earth is this RedWinged Blackbird from Wisconsin doing on Long Island?? I don't know and I don't care. I get the hint sis.

What a cool looking bird! You know what's cool? I've been doing the 30 Day Shred with the blinds open so I can see into our backyard and gaze at the birds feeding from our bird feeder. Doing TaiBo with Mary was a huge part of growing with her for me. I think of her every time I do these work outs and now I can gaze outside and see the red cardinals encouraging me as Mary would to push through and do my best.

Ah, and I love that quote at the end! To be able to see as God sees...that would be a great daily prayer.

I love you sweet sister xoxoxox

More beautiful pictures! What treasures they are. I wish I had a picture of mary and me...

I love the poem- so true! I love that..."unique and perfectly imperfect"- what a wonderful way to describe how God sees us!

Love you, Jeni!

Thanks, Jeni, for remind me that it is o.k. to be imperfect! I can relate to this quote because I tend to focus more on what I see, and what I think others see, rather than what God sees!!! You are right..it is so much easier to be peaceful when you accept yourself just as you are. I love ya!
