Qavah has been counting down the days to her birthday. We celebrated a little early with an outing today. I took Qavah and Annelise to Chick-Fil-A and let them play on the big indoor play tunnels after they had eaten their lunch. They had such a great time. I've watched them at home spontaneously put their arms around each other saying, "You're my friend," or "I love you," but today they were able to do that in a public setting. The sweetness of those moments did not go unnoticed as people around us asked me how they are related. The employee that helped me carry our tray to the table whispered, "I hope they will never lose the love they have for each other." Their friendship speaks of acceptance and is a testimony to the way children reach out to one another. This was a precious memory-making day.
