Mimi



Dearest Mi,

I will always be grateful for the day you were born. You are a gift to many us. It might have taken many years before our paths finally crossed (and I'm glad you were insistent on being friends with me and wrote me that letter over at multiply when I was too snob to make friends with you. haha), our friendship blossomed at the right time.

Thank you for always, ALWAYS making my Cebu trips extra special. For always going out of your way to see me, even during days when you haven't gotten any sleep after work. For being there to comfort me when I lost a friend to death. For all the stories you've shared, for the honest opinion about things, for all the desserts and coffee we've shared. For opening your life and self up to me. For trusting me to photograph you and your family. Thank you for blessing me with all these.

I wish you more blessings. And healing. And a lot more love and true friends.

And on your birthday, I wish something for myself, too -- that you and I will remain friends until we are old and grey and our blood sugar shoots up to the stars because we gorge on our favorite ice cream cakes. And when we do get sugar-shocked, let's laugh our hearts out like we always do.

Happy Birthday, Mi!

Know that you are thought about today,
The Lightchaser

Pin It!
