Jehara is in town. Always cause for celebration.
Amethyst is coming. Always cause for celebration.
Izzy is coming. Always cause for celebration.
We have a hotel room for tonight and tomorrow night, so we can have our slumber (ha!) party. Always cause for celebration.
And at 12:01 tonight we will be sitting with hundreds of other people in crowded movie theatres, watching the last Harry Potter movie. Sort of cause for celebration, although its being the last of the movies is a sad thing, too. We’ve watched the actors grow from really cute kids to grown-ups, with some good acting chops. We’ve been with Harry, Ron, and Hermione as they’ve faced ever increasing powerfully evil forces, always fighting for what’s good and true and pure. We’ve been with J.K. Rowling ever since the first book came out, an unassuming little book that, had it not captured the public’s fancy in a serious way, might have been easily missed.
Always cause for celebration.
I love my sisters, all of them, and I’m so excited to have them here. There are some who aren’t able to come, and I’ll miss you.
