My girls_ they are something_ something special
People often ask if they are twins_ they're not _ but close to it_ separated by only 19 months.
Sometimes I watch them_ mesmerized_ I stare at them
the way they finish each others sentences
how they laugh at each others silly little comments
the way 1 does for the other b/c she doesn't want the other to be upset.
they sleep by each other
they share clothes
they fix each others hair
youngest won't win a game just so oldest can get caught up
yes, they have something special_ even though they don't really "get it"
or know it to it's fullness now.
I imagine them being the best of friends when grown, living on their own, having each their own families_ but still having that forever bond.
Coming from a small family having only 1 brother_5 years between us_ and being closer when we were younger. Years have passed_ and distance has been put between us by miles_ and so by life.
How I wish I had a sister that had gone through lifes struggles and lifes greatest rewards with me_ that sister I could call anytime of day or night.... I don't_ but they do.
And that puts a big smile across this mommas face.
My girls_ they are something_ something special_ they are sisters.
