Well, at least May 30th was, which is when this should have been up… tsk tsk.
Anyways! The reason for this short and sweet postess is a short and sweet sister of mine! 😛
Even though she lives so far away and thus, I have not seen her in many years (sniff…), she and I are like peas in a pod. Distance doesn’t matter when you’re here in my heart! 🙂 I love you, Lovely Lizzy! You’re everything that I’m not, as different as night from day, just like good, small Beth March was from Jo…and that must be why you’re the angel you are in my life!
Sometimes when I’m sitting alone up in my Lego House on the hill and I stare at my desktop wallpaper of that beautiful photo of you and Celeste, I start to reminisce on all our crazy times…
Toronto, Canada – 2001
Remember how we’d try to find all those FTT duet songs, so I could sing the boy and you the girl, while we bounced along in that huge white bus? (“Into your presence… ha ha…”)
Remember “The Second Generation”?? Ha ha ha… and how we split up the episodes, but ended up just listening to me ramble on and on myself about Jackie and Orion and Seth McKirby?
Remember the suitcases of paper dolls, and my brave attempt to make a Ken doll, and call him Marcus Everardo? Ha ha…
Remember those sticky English Corners at 6am in the park in China, and remember pulling ourselves out of bed and going just so we could have some extra pocket money for an ice cream at the NEW McDonald’s?
Remember Bruce from Poona, and Coral from Sydney and singing “Fat legs, oh how I wish they were fatter!” on the highest mountain peak in Guangdong, and getting burnt to a crisp swimming in that crystal clear pool?
Remember Cheng Ming You, the lifeguard in Nanning, and our mini-crush on him (hee hee…) and remember the irony of how Dad saved his life in the pool, when he almost drowned getting sucked against the grate?
Remember playing street hockey with Ryan and Sunny in Brampton, and remember House #5 with all the hot guys living there?
Remember calling Rogers Video and desperately pleading with them to have at least one of the 25 movies we wanted to see, which they absolutely did not have, mostly because they were all made in the 1950’s?
Remember calling roller skating rinks in Rock Hill 72 times? Ha ha ha ha…
Good times, good times… and so many more where those came from.
Happy 22nd Birthday Babette! I love and miss you so much more than you know! I’m praying for you and your future. I know that He’ll always be beside you! Keep scaling those mountains, and know that I’m climbing right here beside you! I hope I can see you this year! Keep it all in your prayers! xxx
