How completely selfish is that? I'm afraid one day, 5 or 10 years from now, when I'm getting ready in the morning and I look out from my bathroom, I might not see this...God, won't you take these innocent childhood days and
S-T-R-E-T-C-H them out a bit longer? Or, maybe I need to slow down...step back...and soak in every moment a bit more. (Then write it down!) I have already forgotten a lot of "little things" that I said I wanted to always remember. Life truly is but a vapor.
No, they may not cuddle and love on one another like they do now...but maybe, just maybe they'll look after one another, take up for him/her when one is put down, love one another in spite of his/her weaknesses, celebrate each other's strengths, screen boyfriends/girlfriends and maybe even tag along on a few dates(ok...that might be pushing it). And when they pretend they don't love each other...because that's just part of growing up with siblings, then I can close my eyes and think back to a time when they would crawl up on our bed and snuggle. Like this...
Then, I can smile and thank God for such a precious memory.
