Challenge - Using a Newspaper Clipping

One of the challenges for the Cottage Arts DT this week was to scan an old newspaper clipping and journal about it.  This isn't what I went hunting for but you know I thought it was just perfect considering the conversation Mom and I had shortly before she passed away about Phyllis's death.  Here's what I journaled:

Dear Baby Sister -
I've often wondered what it would have been like had you lived to share your life with us.  I worried for so many years that Momma would have been sad when she found out she was pregnant with me, the time was so soon after you had passed.  Just a short time ago, before Momma came to join you, I asked her about it and she said that she prayed I would be a little girl.  She didn't want me to replace your spot in her heart but she wanted to help heal the emptiness that you leaving caused her.  That made me feel so good and gave me such peace.  Rest happlily now little Phyllis in our Momma's arms.  
The supply list is on my page in the Cottage Arts gallery here.
