I sit here at home recovering for a simple surgery for the last couple of weeks. I am sitting here playing my favorite game on Facebook and I have the TV on in the background. I finished watching this Christmas movie and they announced The Martha Stewart Show was coming on. Of course I have no interest in her show. However, they were saying this 10 year old prodigy was going to be on her show that was found in the show America’s Got Talent. I had never heard of her before but she is known for her unbelievable soprano voice. Her name is Jackie Evancho. So I was intrigued and wanted to hear this voice.
Well she started to sing and I was amazed. Her voice is truly unbelievable and yet it was coming out of this little 10 year old body. Then I got to thinking how Mari would be the exact same age as this little girl. Mari would be about her size. She has the same color hair and eyes as Mari. Ultimately it just made me miss her all the more. Especially at this time of year.
Mari’s birthday is coming up on December 29th. She would have turned 11. It is hard to believe that she is not here to experience her birthday. I miss her so much. I sit here and watch different commercials. I see thing that Mari would have loved to play with and I guarantee I probably would have gotten it for her. I have cried once already over a stupid commercial. It just makes me miss her all the more.
Now that we are in the season of Christmas we will be bombard more and more with these types of things. I wish somehow we could just skip over it all and just go right to January. It would just be easier.
