Tiger Pumpkin pie

Who would have thought a trip to the library could ignite so many memories? As I glanced around the children's section; book after book started to talk to me. It was the titles that called out Mason's name. The first book titled "Where the Buffalo roam" I felt a warm summer breeze and remembered the field of buffaloes in Memphis.

Then the next book "The First Snowfall with a snowman on the front and another book "Snow music" with a picture of a snow globe. The next book I laughed, a tiger was holding a Pumpkin. And after flipping through the book there stands a tiger holding a PUMPKIN PIE!! Mason had a special message that always included pumpkin pie. It was definitely a hello. A chill went down my spine from the next book" Tiger Flowers". Look at the cover; who would have ever thought?

With the next book my heart just smiled it was simply titled, "I'll always love you"
I remained focused after we are in the public library; Ally started reading an ABC book out loud. I moved to another section of books. Only to find another title jumping out for my attention. "Look over here"

As we were walking out the door another book cried out; "Always my brother".
I could hardly concentrate as I was scanning the books; I do have to wonder was this all a coincidence or was Mason really saying hello? I know there only book titles, but it seemed like the books were jumping out to me. I was just looking for books to read to Ally.
Tonight we saw Kung Fu Panda 2. I remember the commercials. It made Mason smile. As we left the theater, Eddie whispered," Mason would have loved that movie". There was an empty seat next to me; I was thinking of the same thing.

When you miss someone SO MUCH the whole world turns into a MEMORY.
