I Have a Dream...

After we drop Emily off at school on Mondays, Hannah and I have a standing date. We usually get a bite to eat and do a few errands. We both look forward to this time.

While eating a piece of candy and singing Veggie Tales tunes, Hannah said quietly,

"Mommy, I have a dream."

We all know I asked what her dream was.

Her answer?

"To grow up just like my sister. Now, isn't that a great dream, Mom?"

Yes, Hannah. That IS a great dream.

Even though, I LOVE their differences; it always blesses me when they appreciate each other's gifts. Our girls know we want them to be only what God wants them to be. As they grow and discover what that is, I will take each moment like this one and relish it for it's beauty and significance. Initially adversaries, it is a treasure to witness God's love in their relationship and see what He can do, where we cannot. I daily pray that their sisterhood deepens, in each and every way.

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life - Isadora James
