Missing my Mom and Sister......

Mid March and into Spring is a bittersweet time for me..... my sister Karyn passed away seven years ago yesterday; March 14, 2002. My Mom passed away on Good Friday April 12, 2001. Both of them celebrated birthdays with me in March, my Mom on March 11 (2 days after mine) and Karyn's on March 19......... you can read my tribute to Karyn here and the one to my Mom here...... I miss them both so much and I am always floundering around this time...... even though I come from a family of ten children, the connection is fuzzy now and the contact is not really there.
My sister and I were very close, she was an artist, a teacher and my mentor... we did a lot of artistic creating together......
I saved this card.... it was from the last bouquet of flowers she gave me.......
Karyn and Mom......

Here is my Mom and my Baba.....
She was beautiful and kind.....



I am glad I kept this little note........
Another year slips by and yet it is just like yesterday........ all the memories in the world can't take the pain away...... I know that life goes on and time will ease the pain.
I also know in my heart there's this little piece missing........

Silver Sunday, I made it!!!


It's time for another Silver Sunday with Beth over at Gypsy Fish ..........
Hop over to see who is joining in the fun!
This is my silver...... alphabet noodle cutters, I use them to spell out the children's names when we make chicken soup and homemade noodles..... even though it is a lot of work, it is worth it!
These are the silver straws I purchased from Papermash....... so cute! I keep them in my Dutchman Dairy bottle......
My sweet little silver olive picks from my daughter Rhianon.........
A silvery gold bottle..... for the most beautiful bottles you need to see Beth's, they are simply gorgeous!!!!
