today i love sisters.
i love my own sister- who is 6 years younger than me, but 10 years cooler than me.
i love that she calls me all the time to tell me about her far-cooler-life-than-mine.
i love that we can laugh together.
i love that there is no one in the whole wide world that i am sillier with than her.
i love all of my childhood memories of her. she was the cutest little girl in the whole wide world.
i love that we can get ready together and sing every single word to every Taylor Swift song ever written.
i love that we are seeing Taylor Swift together this summer.
i love that she tells me her secrets.
and i love that i can tell her mine.
i love that Mimi sister of mine.
i also love that my little girls are sisters.
i feel like even if i fail miserably as a mom, i will have given them the greatest gift they could have ever been given by simply giving them each other as sisters.
i love that these sisters adore each other.
and they don't even play together yet.
or get into trouble together yet.
and they don't talk all night and tell each other their deepest secrets yet.
though Ellie does carry on full conversations with Alice. and she pretends that Alice responds, too.
i love that Alice never smiles bigger than she does for Ellie.
i love that Ellie is sure that everyone knows that she is her sister and no one else's.
and i love how Ellie loves to put her face reeealll close to Alice's- as if she's getting an extra tight nuzzle that way. i find them like this at least a dozen times a day.
seeing this kind of sisterly love does a mama's heart good, don't you think?
man, so much to love.
