"You always had this happy glow about you, like you knew something good about the world that everyone else didn’t. I think you attributed it to your love of God, at one point. I always felt little next to you, but I always liked watching you do stuff. You were determined and you knew what you needed to do but you enjoyed what you were doing, most times."
by the time i publish this it will be your birthday and i am feeling a little low tonight for reasons that you can probably find on my tumblr and i know i'm not usually like this and when i do get like this i usually read something else and the fact that i read your letter again means something to me (though it probably doesn't mean anything in general) and you're right, i do look at people and the world as though it is good in a way that other people can't see and you should know that i didn't get to bed until five am yesterday and that i may still be slightly delirious but basically happy sixteenth birthday, audrey. it's nice to know that you'll see this post without any negativity or apatheticism. it's nice to know that you'll look at it and smile and that i won't be nervous about overstepping my boundaries this time. yeah. happy birthday, kid. you're doing good.
