Ten Things About My Girls…..

on September 12, 2011

Shelby, 13
1. I love that she’s totally confident in herself. 
2. I love how she has her own sense of style, her own look and she’s not ashamed to try new things with her look. 
3. I love that she reads. 
4. I love her work ethic. 
5. I love her constant hugs and kisses (even though she’s going to be 14, I still get them). 
6. I love her honesty. 
7. I love seeing the world through her eyes: she cares but she’s an activist. She won’t be one of those who sits and gets discouraged. 
8. I love that she believes she has the ability to change the world around her. 
9. I love her infectious giggle. 
10. I love her sense of loyalty. 

Emilie, 12
1. I love her ever questioning ways. 
2. I love her ability to take her world and bring color and design to it. 
3. I love her drive and her desire to do her best. 
4. I love her honesty and her boldness to be honest even in the face of confrontation. 
5. I love (and will someday miss) the little girl in her. 
6. I love that she truly desires to be friends with everyone. 
7. I love that she loves to cuddle up with me. 
8. I love her quirky sense of humor. 
9. I love the heart she has for those hurting and her desire to heal. 
10. I love her very unselfish ways. 

Together
1. I love how different they are. 
2. I love how unselfish they are. 
3. I love how respectful they are. 
4. I love how trustworthy they are. 
5. I love that they both want to help others in need. 
6. I love their incredible love for their family. 
7. I love their extreme intelligence. 
8. I love that they challenge me and make me think. 
9. I love hearing their conversations (when they’re actually conversing and not arguing, that is). 🙂
10. I love their faces!
