In my recent post, 9 Things I love About November, one of the things I mentioned was the outward expression of thankfulness in this season. It truly warms my heart!
I hope to do a better job of slowing down and giving God thanks for His many blessings, so I’ve decided to join some beautiful blogging buddies of mine for ‘A Thankful Heart‘ link-up.
Pausing to reflect on the good that surrounds us, no matter how big or small, does something wonderful for your spirit.
Today I’m thankful for something really special I noticed this weekend:
The growing bond between my precious girls.
Don’t get me wrong, they bicker and tattle and fight all.the.time, but there’s no doubt that they have each other’s back!
We went to a couple fall festival’s yesterday and watching them interact was the sweetest thing!!
Lily wants to do EVERYTHING her big sissy does, and she repeats anything she says. She is her little shadow, and Alex loves being her little sissy’s spokesperson. She makes sure we know exactly what she’s trying to communicate and is always looking out for her.
They were sharing their treats yesterday and chatting away about the fun they were having. At one point Alex even spoon fed Lily some of their sno-cone and I turned into a puddle right then and there!
While doing her hair this morning I told Alex that she was smart and beautiful, strong and kind. I told her God made her so special. Her response?
“Lily too, right?!!!” 🙂
She always makes sure her sister is included, and I love the heart they have for each other. They read together, help one another, and probably have the most fun ganging up on me (usually conspiring with their daddy).
I know there will be plenty of ups and downs between them but something clicked for me this weekend.
Not only is it an incredible privilege to watch them grow, but I also get to witness them grow in their relationship together. For that I am thankful. ❤
We’ll be sharing some thoughts every Sunday of this month, and whether you blog or not you are welcome to participate! Visit Aleigh’s blog, For the Joy of Life for all the details, and use #thankfulheartseries so we can follow along!
