Missing Mary

This is such a sweet lil picture of Mary when she was about 4. We lived in Long Beach, California. I have some memoriable memories of those days.. being a big sis to my Mary. We played, we fought, we laughed, we supported each other and grew close as sisters. Here is where I practiced my beauty school talents on her and where we cuddled up during rainstorms and watched the lightning from the front door. We played hide and seek behind the large palm trees and snuck strawberries from our neighbors garden.... we built a fort on the lower bunk beds and played "operation" in the dark. We caught the bus to sunday school and ran after the donut and ice cream trucks daily. Good times with my lil shadow, my lil sis. She was always there.
What makes me sad is now she's not. I've been missing Mary ~ my biggest fan. A peice of me is missing, I feel it often. This weekend especially so. No particular reason - there never has to be. I guess if i think about it, it was this time 2 years ago that I saw my sister for the very last time. Yes, that must be it. 11-11-07 ~ I miss you Mary - I love you so much - I hope you knew, I hope you know!
