They are capable, strong, brave, feminine, kind,
selfless, and unique, and they are mine.
They are my best friends and my confidants.
They bring light and harmony to my life.
They are steady and dependable.
When I got pregnant with Jane, Claire was just 4 months old.
I was so so so excited but felt slightly little overwhelmed.
I knew things would be a little hectic, and they were, but
those years when they were young were some of the best years of my life.
Claire was bossy, and Jane could really scratch.
I have the best stories about these girls, and we laugh
and laugh when we talk about them:
They share clothes, a bedroom, and books, they coordinate Halloween costumes
and watch movies together in Claire's bed with her laptop.
They ride bikes together, Pinterest together, and
giggle like no other girls I know.
And Charlotte is the cherry on top.
She just adores her big sisters.
I thank God every day for these girls.
Oh, then there was that time that Claire cut
Jane's bangs that was awesome!

Teachings from RMN
"Worship strengthens our power line to deity.
There can be no true worship without sacrifice,
and there can be no true sacrifice without a cause.
The cause that earns our love and priority is the cause of Jesus Christ."
