That's what Ellie said yesterday. We were at Mrs. Donna's (our wonderful, godly hairdresser), and she pointed to Josie-Tatum and said, "We belong together." Are there any sweeter words? I told her, "And, God knew that before either one of you were born. He made the plan for the two of you to be sisters in our family!"
Then, after our hair appointments, we went for a walk. Why didn't I have the camera?
I was pushing Ellie down my favorite dirt road path past my grandmother's old house where my sister lives. Josie-Tatum was walking, too, when Ellie asked Jt to push her. Then, they decided to race me. They were laughing, and I was falling behind. Everytime I would come close to catching up, Ellie would say, "Go, go, go!" and Josie-Tatum would start running again.
I was behind two of the most beautiful girls in the world. And, because one can't walk yet, and so wants to run, her big sister ran most of 2 miles so Ellie could go fast. I heard more laughter and squeals in that 30 minutes that I could ever have imagined when we felt it was time for Josie-Tatum to have a sister. I watched a love that surpasses the human imagination. God is so good!
If we can bear the cold, we're going out again today, and this time I hope to capture some images to share!
