Because in Mari’s world I bet she was always on a quest to find some new adventure that lead her to Giggle Town.
I laugh when I think of that line above. Mari always loved to retreat into her world. Sometimes I wish there could have been a way for me to go with her to see for myself what made her so happy as she visited her own Giggle Town.
It was rare to see Mari sad. She could entertain herself for hours. Turn on a Backyardigans or Dora or Wonder Pets video and she was just happy. She would flap her arms like she was ready to take flight as she ran around in front of the TV in her joyous state. A smile sits on my face as I write this while keeping my tears at bay. It’s times like these memories where I am happy I have them, yet, it makes me miss her all the more.
