a mother's simple prayer

Not much makes my motherly heart happier than when I catch moments like this between my precious daughters.

My prayer is that no matter where life takes them -- the joys, the hardships, the winding roads -- they will always be close; walking alongside each other in their journeys. Ready to give and seek comfort with each other through their trials and to r-e-j-o-i-c-e with each other in their moments of triumph.

Yeah, I pray that my kids will be able to be there for each other, because I can't be there to protect them all through their life. And for them to have that bond and that support, Thank the Lord for Siblings. Though they fight, get on each other's nerves, in the long run, they are SO blessed.

Awwww ~ these are PRECIOUS pictures!! I know, seeing our children loving and appreciating eachother is the best. Because you make family such a priority, my guess is your girls will also treasure their relationship. Not without some turbulence along the way, of course, but that's also a part of learning about relationships.

They're so sweet. Those are some really good pictures.
It is a simple prayer but yet it is such a powerful one.
