At first it was playdates supervised by parents-- making sure they were sharing- and being nice. It evolved into talks on the phone and sleepovers. Now they text-- and rove from one house to another like a pair of hungry bandits.
It has evolved from a friendship to sisterhood. They bicker like sisters, but love each other. They squabble and just as soon as I have figured out what happened they are begging to see each other.
Watching them together is wonderful, I love knowing that Princess has someone (and a spare set of parents) to look out for her- love her- and support her.
I am so thankful to the family who we love and consider our family. Princess's friend and her family are included in our family activities- because family is more than just relatives.
Princess and her sister(friend) will remain friends forever, I bet. They have already supported and seen each other through some tough times- with grace and care that I could use a lesson in. They also share joy and hope- and everything that tween girls should- the giggles and the smiles.
To Friend's family-- thank you for loving our Princess. We love you and your family dearly. We are deeply thankful.
