I Miss You

Have you ever thought about the words, "I miss you" ???? I'm listening to this song that my sister thinks is just a total cheese-ball song: "Far Away" by Nickelback; and he says, "I love you...I wanted you to stay...I miss you..." and I thought, "I'd like to have someone say they miss me" and then I thought, "I do have people who say that." Which I guess brings me to the point that I wish a certain kind of person would say that, if you know what I mean...anyways

Now that I think about it, "I miss you" means a lot! I miss you means that you wish that you were with that person. I don't know about you, but one of the things that means the most to me is being with people; the idea of having someone want to be with me, is, well, amazing. I guess one of my most tangible ideas of this right now is my "separation" from my friends in Tacoma. When I was younger, it was my brother and sisters. Oh, it killed me to not be with them. With my sisters, I was a little bit more used to it, but Sam was around until I was like 7 or 8, and I just about died when he left for the Naval Academy.

I have to admit that I got used to being far away from my family, and that over the year, I get used to being away from my Tacoma friends. This past summer when I went back, I went to a wedding the night I got there, so I got to see everybody right away...I was at the reception, and Callie came up behind me, and I about lost my brain I was so excited to see her. There we were, on the dance floor hugging so tightly, and, oh, I could have hugged her for a year!!

So, I guess my recent discovery is that "I miss you" means a lot. I miss my sisters. So much. I would love to be with them, and that's why I say "I miss you." I wish I could kiss Ariel and toss Judah around, and that's why I say, "I miss you." I miss Hannah's sweet voice and how she always speaks so much truth into me, so I miss her. I miss the way I laughed and giggled with Callie and Chloe, and I miss them. I miss Amy and Rachel most minutes that I'm not with them, even though I'm only about 20 minutes away. A lot of love goes into "I miss you," and I wish i could really, really tell the people that I love how I miss them, because it would be like telling them "I love you" over again.

I would love to be doing that right now. Even if she makes that face. =)
