For Ada

  • Dougherty?
  • lightening bugs
  • "Let me tell you a little story about a man named Jed..."
  • pink stuff
  • smoking game hens
  • old Christmas tape
  • counting cars on the porch
  • naps on mom's couch
  • phone calls to laugh
  • phone calls to cry
  • cross country road trips
  • cowboys and indians (You get the honey bottle!)
  • days at the beach
  • handstand scores
  • family dinners
  • years together
  • years ahead
  • I love you.

"My own blog!" "She wrote me my own blog...it actually says, 'For Ada'". I was just screaming that through my house. The Rouse boys all think I am crazy but I don't care. I'm smiling from ear to ear and then I have tears down each cheek. Its like a little recap of us. Short phrases that send me reeling through our past. They make me remember so much. Thank you. I love you, Jen.

See, now aren't you sweet? I had a post written about me once. It was titled, "6 Weird Things About Kathy." It almost made me cry too, but not in such a good way.

Ada, you know that I could write forever just about you. But I did it this way because I knew that only you would understand. There is so much more I could say, and will someday, but for now just know that you are the best sister and friend ever.

Yay for inside jokes! And Kathy, I was the author of that post, and I assure you it overflowed out of the love in my heart. ;P
