sister love

Hi sisters.

I have a quick photo to share with you today, courtesy of Miriam.

Raising kids is a lot of work, and most of it feels like drudgery much of the time. So many dishes, so much laundry. Lots of cleaning. Ungrateful children who don’t eat the food you make for them and won’t help around the house. Lots of sleepless nights, doctor’s appointments, packing school lunches, etc. Every once in awhile, though, I get a little reward that keeps me going. Just last week I was putting Eve down for a nap and she was resisting (as she often does). Miriam came in the room with a painting she had been working on. And there it was, just a simple message but one that gave me hope for these kids I am raising:

letter to Eve

Isn’t that great? I’m happy that she feels that way. These two, they will always have each other just like we have each other.

Sending my love to you all,

Rachel

  1. YES.

    That sends oceans of happy warmth in my being.
    I often tell S that she & Flora will always have each other.
    Their moments of sweetness are the best.

    SO glad you were gifted this ray of sunshine today! Thank you for sharing it.

    xo.
