Always In Awe

of the beauty of
seeing my children together
and the joy they inspire in one another.




To the outside world, we all grow old.
But not to brothers and sisters.
We know each other as we always were.
We know each other's hearts.
We share private family jokes.
We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys.
We live outside the touch of time.

    I hope your Christmas was a blessed one!

  6. The relationship with our siblings is the longest one of our lives. The potential for a lifelong love and friendship is there for all of us lucky enough to have a sibling.

    A sibling knows how to push our buttons better than most.

    The relationship needs to be treated with respect and tenderness to last the test of time.

    You can see the love thee two have for each other in your photos.

    May they take that childhood love long into their grown up years.

    Love Valerie
