in the shadows

my girlies are sisters...so they fight ALL the time.
{i swore at one point this week i was going to make them hold hands and sit on the couch until they could get along and not fight.}
in spite of their love for each other, they get all "she did" and "she said" on each other and just can't stop.

this picture gives me a glimpse into those small, infrequent moments of pure silence and delight that they have with each other. it's a concrete vision of them just taking time to enjoy each other and the splendor of things around them.

My daughters are 3 and 13 and they fight ALL of the time. It blows my mind with such an age gap. We went to Disney World and they didn't fight at all (or so it seemed). I think back to those days when the screaming begins! I can't imagine what 4 is like and I will soon have 3. Good thing they are so cute!

Oh my goodness THANK YOU for making me feel like my kids fighting all the time isn't all that unusual! I was beginning to think I am doing something wrong. It's never ending - yet there are glimpses every day, and even every HOUR when they get along and love on each other. Thank God for THOSE moments.

Aw (sniff) too cute! I love your pictures of your girls!

Abby said...

I am with you the moments are just too few and far between aren't they? I too have two little girls who seem to be never at fault for anything as their sister is always the one who did it!

Carrie said...

My bro and I fought all the time and beat the crap out of each other when we were kids.

I'm pretty sure if we lived close enough, we'd still be doing it.

haha just kidding.

I love this shot! It makes me miss living near the beach.
I also remember fighting with my sisters growing up, but we loved each other beyond words and are extremely close as adults.
