How can two little bodies be such good friends? Best friends, I believe. Jordan watches over Madelynn with the love that only a big brother can possess. And Madelynn makes Jordan smile even through times of tears, in a way that only a little sister could be capable. I am privileged to witness their relationship. I am eager to observe who they become. They are delightful, and energetic and alive. God has blessed me with their lives even in the midst of death. Two little lives of love. This is what makes me get out of bed in the morning. They are the reason I am still able to brush my hair, get dressed and try to make it through the day.
