52 Week Photo Challenge Week 2

I think sharing rooms is incredibly good for siblings.  I shared a room with my sister my entire life.  We not only shared a room, but we shared a bed. We had separate beds yet we chose to sleep together our entire childhood.  Many nights were spent me holding onto her shirt so that when the bad guys came to get one of us the other would be woke up and could help the other.  So many hours were spent spilling our guts with one another; memories I wouldn't trade for anything.  Sharing the room bonded us and there are so many life lessons to be learned through doing so. 

My girls share a room and have for most of their lives.  Like most siblings, they complain about it.  Yet, like my sister and I, they had seperate beds and have chosen to share one (they now have a full size they share).  Most mornings I go to wake my girls up for school and this is what I find:

If they slept any closer they would be on top of one another!    I pray these girls continue to be each others lifelong best friend.  I tell them constantly that God chose them for each other.  I am so honored to be chosen to guide this.

This started out as a cute, funny picture.  And, now I am crying.


  1. So sweet!! What a sweet blog!! I hope they treasure this time when they are older!!!

  2. I love this! growing up, I always wished God would give me a sister. Though it was 18 years later that he gave me my sister, I couldn't have asked for anyone better. She brings so much joy to my life and to my heart.

  3. I love this! Staci and I were the same way, although when we were awake we would fight like cats and dogs :) Now we are very close and I would not trade her for the world!
