birthday party plans

Tomorrow is my sister’s birthday.   She would have been 66.

Many of you joined in the fun of trying to get her 65 cards on her birthday last year.  She received 94.  It was a great day.

Tomorrow will be a great day, too.

Mari loved pumpkin pie with Reddi Whip (the kind with the blue top).  She also loved a freshly vacuumed carpet.

So tomorrow, I’m going to bake a pumpkin pie.  While it’s baking, I’ll vacuum.   As I eat from the pie,  I’m going to spend the day reading notes from her, listening to my mp3 recordings of voicemails from her, looking at pictures I have of us and celebrate the massive impact her life has on mine.

Sisters really are The Best.
