Time and Family
“Time always seems long to the child who is waiting – for Christmas, for next summer, for becoming a grownup: long also when he surrenders his whole soul to each moment of a happy day”
~ Dag Hammerskoldj
We were blessed to have these young women with us last night. I have many, many photos of these close step-sisters from when they were much younger and were often dressed alike in matching Christmas finery. Then there were a couple of divorces in the family and the adults lost their minds. We rarely saw them after that.
Our role in their early life was to take them places to do silly stuff, to have fun and be themselves. There is so much unsaid about those dark times but they are grown up now and so THEY get to choose who they will spend time with. It was a long, painful wait but the rewards are golden.
May God grant you strength and patience to weather your storm and may you find peace at the end.
NOTE: This photo is in the Amway Grand hotel. We were looking for Christmas sweets.
