I Read You

From the book, "The Deep Blue Sea for Beginners," by Luanne Rice:

"Seahorse!" she said, obviously seeing my number on the screen.
"Starfish!" I said.
We basked in silence, just knowing the other was on the line. Peace, the ultimate connection, being together.
"Okay, I love you," I said. "I love you," she said. That's how we always said goodbye.


As soon as I read this I thought of Mary. She had a passion for the seahorse, almost as much as she did with the ocean and beach. And me? Well I have always been passionate for stars! Anyone who knows me, knows this!

You are everywhere Mary! I feel you, I hear you, I see you in the signs! I even read you.
I love you my precious lil sis and I thank you for staying with me.....
