Sisters. There is nothing better. My heart has never melted like it did the day the ultra sound technician said ”it’s another girl”! I love girls. And somehow these girls of mine are now 6 & 8. I do not have the slightest idea how that happened. But now they talk like little adults and think about things like what they want to be when they grow up. My oldest daughter Ella wants to be an “engineer like daddy”. My younger daughter Caroline wants to be “a princess like mommy”. I honestly had no idea whether I should high-five her for her comment or be insulted, so I just smiled instead. The next day Ella had changed her mind and said “I think I actually want to be a missionary”. Caroline said “not me, I still want to be a princess”. My girls are different, very different. But they still have a deep, intertwined, genetic, girly link that binds them tightly together; and it will last a lifetime. It’s just the way God made sisters. They are free gifts to one another, as well as indisputable evidence of the Lord’s abundant outpouring of grace over my life.
