Flashback Friday

This is a candid photo of me with my nieces, Myka (the more serious one) and Rachel (the happy baby), taken in California the week of my sister Gwen’s wedding. Myka was never too sure about physical rough-housing: it wasn’t her thing, though she occasionally tried to participate. Rachel, on the other hand, clearly enjoyed it even at a young age. These two girls have grown into the most wonderful young women – very different from one another (Myka is thoughtful and introspective, Rachel outgoing and still very into physical comedy) but they share a wonderful openness to life and their hearts are loving and kind. Myka lives in Minneapolis now, while Rachel is in her freshman year at Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. I absolutely love the adults they have become, but today I’m feeling a little sentimental about the children they once were.
