This is a picture of me, Bill, Jon and Mandy in Mexico. I am putting this picture up for two reasons. First, I do not like winter and being cold. In Mexico, there is no winter and it's not cold. Winter is pretty in pictures, I will admit that, but I can look at pictures on a beach, sipping a tasty beverage, enjoying the warm sunshine, and working on a tan. Every winter I go through this, I want to go somewhere warm. The second reason I posted this picture is because I miss my sister. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I am really having a hard time. We spent alot of time together. The holidays will never be the same and I don't know how I am going to get through them. Today I was making pumpkin cheesecake for tomorrow and I started crying and Joshua (who is my tenderhearted one) knew why I was crying and said "Mom don't be sad, it won't be a long time and we will be in heaven and we will see Aunt Mandy again. It will be at Christmas time and that is only a few weeks." If only he understood, only if we all could understand. I know someday I will see my sister again because she is waiting for me and she won't be waiting a "long time." She will run to me and give me that hug I so long for. I won't ever have to say good-bye again. Then, there will be no more tears and we will never spend a holiday apart.
