I like this, "when she laughed, even the birds paused to listen." It's sad to read of this child deprived of its mother. Your description of the "anniversary of Mama's death" is very good. Is this two stories… the child's first then the Aunt that comes to live with them? I love the different "callings" in this. You really have a wonderful way of writing. I was wishing for more about your family and your aunt.
I was confused at first-Hoe could a child have two beginnings? I did evetually see what you were doing, though. What a wonderful family rememberance, and how blessed they were to have an aunt who would step in to help.
