Every day I pray for these two to be best friends. I pray for their bond to be unbreakable, for their friendship to be so deep and undeniable. As I see that unfold and Everett’s gentle spirit guide her little sister, it just makes me so incredibly happy. Sibling relationships can be so unpredictable. I grew up refereeing my younger two siblings and broke apart the fights they were constantly picking with one another. While that may come, I will just continue to pray that E and G are rooted in friendship and love and that the fights are few and far between.
There’s so much about this photo that’s imperfect from a photography standpoint - cluttered background, off-center, I cut off Gentry’s hand in the frame, etc...but the essence that’s captured means more. Their little snickers and plotting grins. Their small fists clutching candy canes at 7:30 AM that they broke into the pantry to find and were begging to have. 😳 The way they were so excited to share a chair and Gentry patted the seat beside her, scooted over, and said, “Sit here, Ev-ett!” The matching pajamas my mom made them and how excited they are to match each other. 😍
Perfection is overrated.
