Easter Blessings

We have been blessed this week to have the girls with us.  It's been crazy and chaotic, quiet and comfortable.  They have been stuck to me like glue, under my feet like wet grass, and at other times been content to disappear, sharing secrets with each other and testing their independence two floors away.  Weekends are far too brief; just about the time we settle in to a routine, it's time to bid them "goodbye" for another seemingly endless stretch.  But during these weeks they get to experience the real deal -- periods of "down time," chores, parents who work hard and play hard, family dinners night after night, and an erroneous, imperfect, sometimes difficult life of love and happiness.  They are a blessing to us; I hope they feel the same.
