Sweet Sisters

Where, oh, where did the time go? I clearly remember the day this picture was taken. Belle kept yelling at the photographer, "You don't take my picture!" And Estella kept putting her toes in her mouth every time we turned around. And her poor bow is about to pop off at any moment. I honestly don't know how we even got this shot. They look so little to me.


Today, they fuss and fight and, every now and then, love on each other. The fussing and fighting happen with much more frequency. Oh, my girls.


I read a quote by Margaret Mead that said, "Sister is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship." That is my prayer. They don't know yet how blessed they are, but the gift of each other is so amazing. I hope you are right, Ms. Mead.

Your girls are beautiful! (As are you!)

Ms. Mead is right. My sister and I did every dreadful thing we could imagine to each other. But now, we have a bond like no one else in our family.

Angela, this quote is SO true. Lins and I didn't get along for many many years (sorry, I know that doesn't help) but now that we are grown we call each other and go to each other for everything. We truly are best friends.

You are right about the sisters - I could not live without mine!

I've been away for awhile.

Praying all is well.
