I must share something that happened last night that touched my heart. I looked after my granddaughters last night while there mom and dad went to see David Copperfield. Before they left, baby Josie was not feeling very well and she was clingy to her mommy. ( She is a mommies girl for sure) . I had also not seen her for quite some time. As my son and daughter were about to leave , my son passed baby Josie to me and of course she was crying and wanted her mom and dad. I stood holding a crying baby, while her mom and dad stood at the door waving goodbye. When Josie realized that her mommy and daddy were not coming to her rescue she immediately reached out for her 3 year old big sister to come and take her and comfort her! I did not take offense but just giggled. Little Josephine just showed me that if her mommy and daddy were not going to bail her out then she was going to turn to her big sis whom she adores. Abby and Josie have a wonderful sweet relationship that began when Josie was born and has grown and will continue to grow. Sweet sisters! I have a sister like that. I adore my sister so much. She is always there for me (even though I am 16 months older)! My sister has always been my good friend.. my best friend.. my kindred spirit. So when I saw how Josie reached for her sister to comfort her , it touched my heart. I know that Abby and Josie are going to be close like that even as they grow old. What a treasure they are! What a treasure sisters are!
