I can honestly say that I love each and every single one of our children equally, and that this love for them is unique, just as their personalities are. There definitely is not one child that stands out as my favorite - they are all my favorites!
Yet, there is such a special blessing in having a daughter, and much more in having two. Little girls are such a joy to me as a mother. I connect with my sweeties in ways that the boys just cannot relate, and they probably feel the same way about their Dad.
I think if I only had sons and no daughters I would have missed out on one of the sweetest blessings that life has to offer. It's hard to explain, but there is a bond between me and my daughters that is just between "girls only".
Today was our church's annual Mother-Daughter Tea party. It's hard to believe I now have two sweet little angels to take along, one more pretty than the other. Becky still has more of a cute baby look, with her doll face and porcelain skin, whereas with Miriam I am starting to see what she will look like as an adult. I literally never once look at her without being taken aback by how beautiful she is. But more than that, they are beautiful on the inside.
I love my daughters. I hope God in His grace will bless me with many more.
