Joy’s Journal 2-4

dscn36971                         After we came home from the hospital I sat in my bed, being sad. I didn’t want to leave my family OR Savana. I wished we could all just stay here. Maybe, maybe I can get out of it. But then I would have to leave Savana.

dscn36991                          “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHRG.”

Savana came out of nowhere and came to sit on my bottom bunk.

“Hi Joy! Why are you screaming? I’m leaving tomorrow, did you know? I’ll miss you so much.”

“Hi Savana. I’m screaming because I’m frustrated.”

“Why are you frustrated?”

“Because my parents decided to send me to boarding school with you, and I don’t want to leave them.”

“That’s great!–for me. What about your sisters? Aren’t they coming with you? You will be able to see them too.”

“My parents decided on only me-because I am ‘hard to take care of.'” I burst out crying.

“Oh Joy, it’s not all THAT bad. You could be going alone. At least we will have each other.” dscn37001                       Savana jumped up.

“I’ll be right back!” dscn37011                         She came and dumped a bunch of clothes on my bed, trying to distract me probably.

“I think you should take all of these.”dscn37021                        Then she put one more thing on the pile-a very special shrug of hers that I had always loved.

“I think you should take this too.”

“I can’t! It’s yours!”

“I am giving it to you. When things happen, and you know they will, you can be reminded that I’m still here for you.”
