Looking upon us all

Looking upon us all

I see my sister in her daughter’s eyes as she says, “Look at me mama.”

Her mama, my sister, passed away with cancer at age 33, when Olivia was only 2. Olivia loves to bake and is full of love and life. When she looks at me, I see her mama's bright eyes looking back. My sister I know is proud of her as she looks upon us all from heaven. As for me, I am blessed by all the wonderful memories I shared with my sister while she was here on earth, and with my niece Olivia, who is 11 and has become my little buddy, filling a void in my heart left when my sister passed. God always has a way of working things out.
