two by two: my daughters

One day, my beautiful girls, it will be just you two.

You will be the Graham family. You might have new last names, but you will always and forever be Grahams.

And you will always and forever be sisters. Best friends. Confidantes.

It will be you two that remember the embarrassing stories, the family vacations, the secrets, your weird daddy and your silly mommy.

Please be kind to each other even when you don’t want to.

Take care of each other, not because it’s your job, but because it is your joy.

I sometimes worry that two isn’t enough, that you need more siblings to help you, for later.

And there was a moment where that was to be true.

But I believe that for us, for you both, two is good. You can handle the sole responsibility to love and care for each other, to be a family when we are no longer here telling you how to be, what to do, how to love.

Hopefully you’ll have learned a few things from us and learned more things for yourselves.

And I trust that two will be enough, that with a God bigger than I could even imagine, you two, my precious babies, will be enough for the world.

I guess the bigger question is is the world ready for you two?

(I’ve had some requests for pin-able images so hopefully these will help!)
