This is the picture I have on my desktop at work. And Nick loves this pic so much I made him a mug with this image on it for Christmas. I love having Arrine watch over me. And now and then I catch myself letting my eyes rest on her picture for a few extra seconds. Wondering what she is doing at daycare…thinking about something amazing she said to me earlier…just loving her.

I am told again and again how much she looks like me. And the most wonderful thing I love to hear is when others tell me how much I look like amm.

When I was Arrine’s age, did they say the same thing to amm? “Kirsten looks so much like you?”

amm’s spirit is alive in me…and Grandma Anne-Marie’s spirit is alive in Arrine too.
