dear monday me / january 10, 2011

10 Jan

from your fireside perch, you aren’t so sure.

the cold is wet and carried by a knife-wielding wind.

but her smile is sweet, and you think you divine a glimpse of hindsight in the crystal snow.

at the bottom, you lose all resistance to joy.

sprinting towards the next dip, you trip into sandpits filled with snow.

she mirrors your moves, and betters your form.

typical sister.

your home-sweet-home snow globe would look something like this,

and when shaken would prove you’ve still got mad ups.

    Makes me smile and reminds me how blessed I am to have three amazing daughters. But, you were the first. You paved the way. You set the bar high and pushed #2 and #3 to strive even higher, but not really…because you are simply amazing, Abigail.

    You all were so cute out there. Good thing I documented those cartwheels so well :) Thanks for always being the fun sister that jumps around and goes sledding!
