There comes a time when you realize that life is passing too quickly and you try to stop it in its tracks. right. there. this. time. no. more. growing. up
My baby sister turned 13 today, oh she is a happy girl! I called her this morning to wish her a happy birthday and to tell her how much I love her, she is my baby. My baby that I helped my mama raise, my sweet little baby sister. Oh how I wish she would shrink back to being in premie diapers and drinking a bottle and gazing up at me and smiling and laughing. She was delievered to our house 10 days afer she was born, and she was a beauty, a jem, a ruby, a blessing. That summer my mom bought me a new car and me and Ronald and Elizabeth did some traveling... back and forth to the beauty shop, doctors visits, shopping, swimming, hanging out at the house. These two babies are such a part of me you would think I birthed them. But I didn't we were blessed to get Ronald and a year and 10 days later his sister. Both had the same delievery's, by car, Ronald to the beauty shop, Elizabeth to the house on a hot summer day. I would not change a thing, not. one. thing.
Ronald and Elizabeth our trips to the mall, ice cream shop, biscuitville for pancake platters, sprinkler in the front yard, playing in the kiddie pool (all 3 of us ), hearing for the first time, Ronald our morning ride to get a biscuit and a coke and chatting before school started and our famous photo sessions, Elizabeth our secret signs to talk to each other and our all day movie Saturdays... all of this engraved in my heart and mind forever, plus many more memories!
Elizabeth you are 13 today and are a beautiful, smart, sweet young lady! I love you more than you will ever know! You have taught me so much since that hot summer day you came to our home to be with us forever and forever. As I told you this morning I would jump to the moon and back if thats what you needed. You have changed my life in more ways than you know and I LOVE YOU for that! Just think in a couple of years you will be driving and I will be on medication because with you and Ronald driving at the same time I can't handle it :) Not to mention Ronald's girlfriend, ack!!! But it's life and God has His grand plans for us all and so far His plan's are better than any of mine!!
Happy Birthday my shuggy!!! I love you so much more than I can show you!!
