When you were born, I was 18. I skipped school to go to the hospital to meet you. I could not wait! I was so excited!!! We became best friends instantly, as soon as I held you. I loved you so much.
Everyday after school, I would come and see you and hold you. When I went away to college, I didn't go far. I would come and see you every weekend. You were always excited to see me. You came and watched me play basketball often, you even made up a song along the way, "We're on our way...we're on our way...on our way to Bon Bon's game."
A year later, I moved further away, to Springfield, and I still came home as often as I could; as I couldn't wait to hold you and play with you. We always had so much fun together. You still came to watch me play basketball. We played in St. Louis a lot, and you made up a song on the way there, too. "The 'Arch' is bigger than the skyyyy...the 'Arch' is bigger than the skyyy..." You always crack me up.
We did everything together. Ever since you were a baby, you loved horses. When you were so little, you acted like a horse and even neighed like one. It was so funny!
Then, I decided to make a big change in my life. I knew it was a little crazy, but I needed something different. I loved every minute I spent with you, Daniel, Tt, and Nathaniel, but I decided to move to Hawaii. It was very, very hard to say goodbye, not knowing when I would get to see you again. But when we do see each other, we have the best of times, no matter how little it is that we do, just the time together are good times. I know it's hard for you to understand why I moved, and there's not really a good explanation for it, but I need you to know how much I love you and how often I think of all of you.
I found a passion to fly since I moved here, and I love it. Then, mom and dad came to visit me. To my surprise.....I saw you and little Daniel walking out of the airport, too!!! That was the best surprise, EVER! I was soooo excited to see you guys! We had a blast! I was so excited you got to experience what flying is like, too, and why I love it so much, as well as the beauty of the island - or "slab of sand" as you like to refer to it.
Even though I haven't been around much, i still watch you grow. You have become a tall, beautiful, smart, strong, funny girl, and I am so very proud of who you've become. I am so proud of you for studying so much and doing so well in school, while playing guitar, running track, playing basketball, AND taking horse lessons. You still know how to manage a schedule and stay focused.
Now, unbelievably, you are turning 13!!! I still can't believe it. A couple months before your big day, it hit me....I'm gonna miss your 13th birthday. It made me really sad, but I knew there was nothing I could do about it. And for that, I am sorry.
You are my best friend, Elizabeth. You always will be...no matter how far apart we are. Happy 13th Birthday, baby girl. I miss you so much.
I love you...always,
your Bon Bon
