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.
