20th Birthday

These pictures mean a lot to me. I wanted to remember where I was at in my life when I was 20. I like ice-cream. I like going to the movies with Wyatt. I put cheese on everything. Naps keep me happy and I love to dress up. Even though I’m in my twenties (wuw…thats weird to say) I will always be a kid. This little girl inside will never want to grow up. I will say though, I think I’ve been through my fair share of battles. I’d like to think of myself as one tough cookie (mmm, cookies) because after much loss, I’m still here, standing tall… ok I’m wearing heels but whatever. I know my brother is looking down on me and thinking “Atta girl.” But to tell you the truth, its still so hard. I would want more than anything in this world to celebrate my 20th birthday with my brother, but that wasn’t part of plan I guess. In spirit, I know he’s here walking with me, everyday. I hope he sees how far I’ve come. I hope he knows that even though I’m trying to move on…I will always miss him, with every step I take. Looking back on my life I wanted to remember that even though my life was dark at times I still managed to smile and eat my ice-cream. I’m proud of myself. I did it. I’m doing it. Taking it day by day. Can’t wait to see what the next twenty years bring. Lots of recovery, happiness and life, I hope.

Whatever it is YOU’RE going through, always remember to smile and eat that ice-cream. Somebody loves you. I love you.
