On sisters

IMG

Meet my sister Jolly. Yep, Jolly and Joyce 🙂 I miss her today more than ever. Not so sure why, maybe because the other day, I saw this at home and I flew back to those times when I thought I was so broken and no one really cared. Then when we come to certain terms with ourselves, we realize that a lot did, in my situation, she was one who cared the most.

We didn’t have a perfect sister to sister relationship. Believe it or not, she hated me for being so vain when she was in highschool and I was in gradeschool. Won’t forget that once I tickled her it ended up with a hair fight instead. We grew up (my height stayed the same), she has accepted (I think) the fact that I am vain as ever. She got her heart broken, I got mine and never went to hair fights again. 🙂

She always thought I was the one who has a straight path, like what she said above. That was 6 years ago. As it turned out, she is the one who’s fully living her life right now. She’s married, happy and with a baby. Hmm… it’s been some time, just wanted to thank my sister for seeing me in a different light. Yes I may be in a quarter life or mid life crisis right now. But I believe that my chances has not passed yet, they will come and one day I will see myself in the way my dearest sister saw me.

Life will always be jolly and full of joy, even with obstacles.

20 years to go

Dearest 47 year old Joycelyn,

Be still and continue praying

For you have come a long way

God has blessed you

With more than you can think of

Your fears didn’t kill you

They made you stronger as ever

Continue to shine like the star

For yourself, your family and the rest of the world

Love Lots, 27 year old Joycelyn

Dearest 14-year-old Joycelyn,

Pray once you get up, for it will be your daily armor

Still, pray at night to thank God for your blessings

It is true that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger

But do not push yourself too hard

Love all the there is to love

And forgive all there is to forgive

You will have a super great life

A loving husband and bright kids

If at times you feel so down

Remember you are a star

Made to shine

For yourself and others

Love Lots 27-year-old Joycelyn
