365 grateful - Hailey - sister's in a treacherous backyard sea!

Sisters are the best!

Watching my two daughters play makes me more happy than I can describe.
I want to burst with happiness!
Life is filled with giggles and the delight these two find in each others company.
I am sure they won't always feel this way about each other (not even currently!!) However I am grateful they have each other and that I get to watch their sweet friendship.

They could not be more different in some ways yet they give each other so many good things. They are peas in a pod but very different little peas and that I guess makes life so much more interesting.
My heart is full. I am blessed.

Here they are sailing on the 7 seas in our treacherous backyard.

My own sister Georgia was born today 23years ago. I still remember the day she was born. I think she was a month early and so small she fitted in my dolls clothing.
I loved her and her amazing big brown eyes. I loved to dress her up and take her chubby little hand in mine. I still remember when she was 3 and I played a joke with her about swapping some of our toys. She was too quick for me and held me to my promise. A deal that I had hoped would go over her little head!

So today I am grateful for the sisterhood I watch everyday and for my own sisters, Georgia and Benedicte. I rather like all the girls around and amazing women my daughters have to draw on and go to for fun or advice.

365 grateful - a girl and her daddy by Hailey

Today I am grateful for a girl and her daddy.

As I watched Poppy snuggle into Andrew today I was so struck with how much I love seeing them together.
Seeing my loves adore each other is one of life's sweetest gifts.
