A long time ago in a land that is now far way lived a little girl who had moved to a new state, she was eight years old. While she lived happily with her two older sisters, she wanted a big brother of her own. In this land also lived a teenage boy who still had a lot of love to give to his little sister, but she was taken from him by a drunk driver, she was sixteen.
The families of these two children met and became great friends and while the little girl didn't replace the boy's sister, she gladly accepted the role of "little sister" that he bestowed upon her. She now had a brother of her own and it was official because the boy's mother was a notary public and she notarized the "adoption" papers they drew up!
As time went on great memories were made and good times were a constant in their lives. On the girl's sixteenth birthday she had a party in which the boy brought a date, a princess named Katrina. To the delight of the young girl, Leon married Katrina and the princess accepted her as family and became a sister in the process. Every holiday was filled with laughter and games, riding four wheelers and dune buggy's, or motorcycles and boats. The boy became a man but never gave up the boy in him. He was kind, loving, giving and would do anything he could do for you. He was a follower of the CEO and he was faithful to his faith family, always serving others.
The little girl also grew up and became a woman who married her prince and had a family of her own. The boy and his wife loved the girls' children with all their hearts and made them feel special and began creating wonderful fun memories for them. It was just like they had done for their mother when she was little. All children loved the boy, he was just like them only he had a job and money!
Thirty two years later there was a tragic accident which took the life of the boy. There was shock and disbelief, how could all that energy, love and light be gone? His princess was left, but not all alone. She was surrounded by family and friends and a CEO who loves her and promised to not only see her through, but also gave her hope of seeing the boy again one day.
There is no end to this story as I believe all is still being worked out for the good of all those involved.
G-- is too wise to be mistaken, G--is to good to be unkind, so when you don't understand and you can't trace His hand.......trust His heart. I am thankful to be the little girl in this story, my life and the lives of my husband and children have been made richer by knowing the boy and his princess.
