My children actually like each other.
I mean, yes... they DO have those days... you know, the ones marked by
I'm-gonna-throw-you-under-the-bus-as-soon-as-I'm-able kind of moments.
But those are not a constant; they are not the everyday.
And when they do inevitably make an unwanted and unexpected appearance,
we have the perfect opportunity for working them through,
for talking them through,
and for restoring peace to our family & home.
And what a privilege it is to witness... every single day...
their All for one, and one for all mentality.
Though nine years separate my oldest from my youngest...
though three are male and one is most definitely NOT...
though battles come and battles go...
they ENJOY one another's company.
They enjoy one another's companionship.
They enjoy one another's camaraderie.
They enjoy one another.
So much so that this little nugget... all pink and girlie...
wants to be just like them.
Water pistols and all.
I think I'll take it :)
