Happy After All.

March 17, 2010

I feel like skipping,
I feel like smiling,
I feel like jumping up and down on my bed,
or like falling in love all over again.

I was reminded of the way I felt when
they sang Auld Lang Syne on New Years Eve
and the fireworks lit up the sky;
Or the night my family sat in the living room,
before I moved away for college,
before my parents moved to New Zealand,
and we recounted all our favorite memories:
Like when my mom stayed up late with a plate full of cookies,
because she was just as excited as I
to go to the homecoming dance with the
cute boy in my English class.

I think about the sleepovers we spend laughing
til three in the morning and I secretly wonder why on earth
we weren't put in the same family,
when we happen to be so much more like sisters at heart?

Or that afternoon, when I felt like giving up on life,
and my dad came in and gave me a hug,
and let me cry in his arms, just like I did when I was little.

I feel like life was reminding me that
good things are meant to work out,
and that we're meant to be happy after all.

this is wonderful! I love a good hug, they are just the best! I was telling my institute teacher how amazing a hug from Jesus would feel.... off the charts, I bet!

I didn't realize that your parents MOVED to New Zealand! I thought it was a vacation! How did they decide to move there??
