I remember thinking "What have I done to deserve this?????" but that selfish, scary thought only lasted a minute as I realized "Wow, God must really have faith in me to trust me with two babies at one time!" (on top of a two year old at home). It didn't take long for me to know what a blessing and a miracle this was.
These girls have always brought me so much joy!
I know these High School years are going to be fun, but they are good girls and I'm so thankful for them!
Here is a glimpse into my world with twins for the last 16 years:
Amber is strong. She is not so emotional and thinks things through. We call her the family attorney.They are both goofy and fun. I love our "girls only" road trips!
Now that you know them a little better, I ask for prayer. While they are excited about turning 16 they are also very sad. We are having a party (with 60 of their closest friends - yikes) on Saturday. Their Daddy was planning a huge "sweet 16 party" and now we have scaled it down to fit Grandma's back yard. They are not sad about this but they are not feeling much like celebrating with out their DAD.
They miss him very much and it's times like this, that him not being here hurts the most. He was our "party person". He loved a big celebration!! I am trying to make it as fun as possible but I don't know how to fill that gaping hole in their hearts. Father's Day on Sunday doesn't help. Please pray for a fun and healing weekend. I know God will sustain us - it's just the worst feeling in the world to see your kids hurting and not be able to heal them, only God can - over time.
