on the mend

sometimes in our life we all have pain
we all have sorrow
but if we are wise...:

dear march thirtieth,

yesterday was hard.
but today is even harder.
march thirtieth... how do i mend my heart?
i've tried to do so in several different ways.

thinking.
not thinking.
pondering.
tears.
flashbacks.
praying.
pictures.
shopping.
laughing.

maybe its just time. time is what i need. more time.
march thirtieth, you are going to be a good one.
tonight we {you, me, & some family}
are going to celebrate two of my favorite twin aunt's birthdays.
one of whom lives in farmpit & the other in heaven.

tonight we are going to be on the mend.
healing.
loving.
reminiscing.
laughing.
enjoying more time.

march thirtieth, this next year will give me more time.
time to grow.
time to learn.
time to laugh.
time to think.
&
time to mend.

loves & kisses,
mrs. mcphee



{ the twins... 40 years ago}


{sammy & mimi}


{must have been their birthday.
by the amount of fingers held up,
mimi thought it was their 10th
& sammy thought it was their 9th.
i bet samantha was right.}

we know that there
is always tomorrow.

Samatha is right, then, now, and always (atleast that's what she would say)! It was our ninth birthday. I didn't think it would be that hard of a day, but as the day came quickly, I quickly fell apart. I'm not sure I will ever be happy to see my birthday come again. It doesn't help being at the age where your life is half way over! Thanks for picking up the pieces of my heart. Your smile, and little family always makes me Happy!!! I love you.
