Sisters: A rare moment




After church today, Jason was in the kitchen cooking (how blessed am I???) and I was cleaning up around the house.

I heard Kaylyn say,"Mommy, come and see this!" in the most excited and sweet voice.

I came around the corner and saw this precious moment- a rare precious moment around here.

Kaylyn is our cuddly one and Laney Rae is our busy one.

Ever since Laney Rae took to walking, she hasn't really let Kaylyn hold her much although Kaylyn is constantly trying to squeeze in a few hugs here and there.

It was pretty special that Laney Rae came and laid her head right in her big sister's lap and Kaylyn knew that. Her face was beaming with delight.

The moment lasted all but a few minutes but it meant the world to Kaylyn. I'm one thankful momma. These two girls are so different, yet they each bless my life in words that I can't fully express right now.

In the midst of chaos and the crazy moments of life that come with the territory of having toddlers, I pray that I remember moments like this- a peaceful and precious moment.

And then the tickling began!

So cute! My girls were the same way at that age - the older one a mama and the younger one constantly on-the-go. And those chubby thighs - I just want to gobble them up!
