The Inseparable

There may be two years that separate them in age.  There may be a wedding coming up that might separate their living arrangements.  But these two are of one heart.  They share a love that is undeniable.  They will never really be separated. 

Last weekend, Brian and I  had the treat of taking two of our daughters to the beach.  There may have been other reasons that took us there, but the focus for me was spending a few last days with just our abbreviated family of four.  As I watched them playing on the beach, my mind went sailing back to another beach trip with just the four of us.
I am so happy to see that they are still great friends, still a resource for fun, for love, for understanding.
Their sense of fun and adventure has only heightened with their maturity.
I love you, my dears.  One of the greatest joys a mother can have is to see a special bond among her children.  I have been blessed beyond measure.
Though men will come into your lives and try to separate you, remember that sometimes, there is only room on the couch for sisters...

It's been great watching your girls grow up over the last ten years. They are both great examples of young women. Of course Jackie is as well even if this post wasn't about here.
