You and You and You belong to me

For my birthday, Heather gave me a card to end all cards.  It was amazing.  It made me cry.  Seriously.  How can you top that?  How, I ask. How!?!?


One of the lines read,


"And we know what only sisters can know-
 that sticking together works for almost anything life can throw at us. 
That we belong to each other in a way that we can never belong to anyone else..." 


And honestly, that line has been rolling around in my head all day ever since.  


So, I know that technically, this is supposed to be a post about Mothers, but in my heart, I know that line is true for so many of My Loves.


So, here's to Belonging to lots of different people in lots of different ways.  


I am loved in a way that overwhelms me.   In case you didn't know it, or don't feel it right now- 


You.Are.Too. 


With that being said, my mom is, hands down, the most selfless person I know.  
  
Stumbled upon these two photos tonight, the last of the two made me cry. I am the tiny one with no hair.  





Happy Mother's Day. 


Love and that was the first time we met, 
H.

This post made me cry, partially because I'm so grateful that our family has some of the best moms ever to walk this earth, and partially because I literally saw Norah hug Penny exactly like that before bed tonight. I am just so, so grateful to be the mom of sisters. I hope I can teach them to love as well as the two of you do.
