I don't even know where to begin. I feel like we've literally been through thick and thin with each other, despite only knowing each other for 3 years. You are one of the few people that I have been able to connect instantly with and the only one that I think really knows who I am and where I am at in my life. You pretend that you don't care what others think, but the beautiful thing about that is...you do. You treat others with respect and kindness, even if that may mean some bluntness is needed :). You aren't afraid to stand up for your loved ones: friends, family. You acknowledge the positive in others and commend them for their achievements, yet significantly down play the fact that you have achieved so much! Here you are: alive, strong and continuously working hard for your family, your beliefs, your goals, and dreams. You amaze me by just how strong you are. You want to do an iron man for goodness sakes! I am so grateful that you are so willing to be my friend, despite the goofiness, blunders, and distance. I am so touched by the nurturing friendship you have given me and wish so badly that I could repay you for all the pep talks, encouragement, laughs, shoulder to lean on, thrift store outings, pictures you took, and love you have given me. I am so grateful for this day, because today was the day that my dearest friend, Kirsten, was born. Happy Birthday Kirsten.
And because I can't be there to celebrate with you, I made you something.
"Desluna, Genyphr, and the Flying Panda Bar saves Lokunamewana"
On a terrible and bleak day in the city of Lokunamewana, the houses were in flames from a very large and (I'll admit) very cute dragon who was carelessly playing with his new fire breathing skills. The Loknamewana townspeople were afraid and it seemed everything that could go wrong, was!
The mayor of Loknamewana, Mz. Pow T. Face, knew that the only way the town would be saved is if they had some superhero help. So, Mz. Pow T. Face aired her own world wide commercial, offering a beautiful pink leather handbag along with some fire red pumps to anyone that could save Loknamewana.
In a very distant town, so distant it needn't be named, Desluna and Genyphr, two renowned superhero runners were taking a nice jog with some athletes and their sidekick Panda Bar. While the race was going, the commercial of Mz. Pow T. Face came on the scoreboard. Realizing that the city of Loknamewana really needed their help, and they were down to their last pair of red pumps, the superheroes jogged off to help.
Meeting with Mz. Pow T. Face, they were informed of the dire situation and dressed for the occasion. With their best faces (and dresses) on, they quickly sent the little dragon on his way home, where he was sent to a naughty spot for the chaos he caused by his mommy dragon. Then, seeing that the Loknamewana-aans had no homes whatsoever, they put on their own show called Extreme-Extreme Home Makeover and rebuilt and decorated the entire towns peoples houses.
Then Desluna, Genyphr and Panda Bar went on their merry way to wherever with their new pink handbags and red pumps in tote.
