Missing Amanda

When Andi married and moved away I missed her a lot. The sound of her voice, the little conversations we had, knowing what she was doing, where she was going, when she would be home . . . all that ceased abruptly one day. Even though Andi is missed, Amanda was here so even though the house became quieter- it was not silenced. Amanda and I have since traveled to Washington DC together, We have cleaned the house together, smashed, created photo books, sewed, blah, blah and blah together. I kinda got used to the conversations we had and hearing her sing as she hung out at home. Now it is quiet.
The upside is that I can chew my gum as loud as I wish, but I sure do miss Amanda's smiling face and positive outlook on everything. Good thing she is close enough to come home during college breaks. Miss YOU, Amanda!

We love Amanda! We taught Maggie to stick up her pointer finger when we ask her who is #1. The other day, we were sitting in the living room and I asked her who was #1 and she pointed to the picture of Christ that Amanda painted. She's a smart kid, and Amanda is so talented.

Jenn- Thank you. I saw Amanda for a short time today. It sure lifted my mood to hear her voice and be around such a positive and bright person. Then she left. :( P.S. I miss seeing Maggie!
