Twenty Sentences

After reading Saviabella's "20 Sentences" entry, I told her I was going to copy her, and do my own. And I did. The basic idea is to write twenty sentences about twenty different people, not mentioning what sentence is about what person. This little exercise really got me thinking about all the wonderful, and not so wonderful people, I have encountered in my life. Although I couldn't write a sentence for all of them, I was reminded that their actions have affected me in some way, at some point in my life, and I hope that I affected them in some way as well. I am grateful for all of the people I have met in my journey, and it was nice to take the time to reflect on that.

I know you are just looking out for me, but sometimes, I need you to mind your own business.

Even though you can take an eternity to get your point across, you always make sense to me in the end.

The fact that you put up with my insecurities, absolutely baffles me.

Your funeral was one of the happiest days of my life.

You want to be the girl with the most cake.

I wish I had spent more time with you, but I am grateful for the time I did take out of my busy teenager schedule to be with you.

I will forever regret saying the words, "Don't worry, I'll never be back", but I won't dwell on it, because deep down, we both knew I didn't mean it.

I sometimes wonder if, had we met as adults, would I still have fallen so hard for you and thought of you as my soulmate?

I worry daily that the next time I see you will be at your funeral, so I am going to come looking for you very soon.

I want you to live your life to the fullest and put you and your needs ahead of everyone else.

Even on my worst days, a smile, a hug or even a high-five from you can cheer me up almost instantly.

You make me want to be a better me, and I love you for that.

We have had our ups and downs, but I think that our friendship is stronger because of it.

Don't worry about being perfect, or being what you think other's expect you to be.

Because of you and your beliefs, I learned to be more passionate about the things that I care about.

I will never forget how you took advantage of me, but I have forgiven you, and I think I understand why you did what you did.

There have been times when we went years without seeing each other, but when we get together, it's like we saw each other yesterday.

Thank you for yelling at me, and making me feel like I was capable of being something special.

When I am with you, I become excited about the prospect of being a mother.

I never had a biological sister, but I have you, and that's good enough for me.
