Being the youngest sister closest in age to Emily, I feel like I got to spend the most time with Emily. I got to share a room (twice), had to share a bed until another one became available, have always shared a bathroom, and got to share a house for a year with her. She is a great older sister to have.
Emily is one of the most creative and imaginative people I know. And that is very admirable in my eyes.
When she was the oldest sister upstairs, she would tell us a story at night about a girl named Beulah. We’d all fallasleep before she’d finish but she’d catch us up the next night. Her movies reflect her intricate creative mind. I’m jealous when I hear her movie ideas but I’m even more jealous of her coveted acting skills. She stars in a majority of the movies made at home and is consistently nominated for best actress. Amazing.
Emily and I were supposed to be roommates together in college. We were going to go to Ouachita (I think) and she’d be a Senior and I’d be a freshman but at least we would have one year together. The age/year different wouldn’t be a problem.
That fell through but she did introduce me to JBU where I ended up going and loving all four years. So thanks Em.
Like one sister said before me, she is wise. I enjoyed her wisdom when I lived with her. While our range of discussion would vary from what we thought the lyrics were to a song to how God loves us, Emily has a thought out, loving response unlike any I’ve known before. I do value her opinion and appreciate the way she expresses it.
I got to go home for the end of Emily’s birthday. I ate left over bagel bites and S’more bars. I gave her an Alfred Hitchcock movie I hope to watch with her. She introduced me to Bubble Tea and the Couch to 5K app. We sat in the sun by the pool and chatted. I love spending time with Emily. Last week I called her singing, asking what song this was. I love it that we found out. I love quoting movies with her. I love making movies with her. I love Emily.
