Harmony's new friend

Since the "big kids" have gone to school, the dynamics at preschool have changed. Along with that, Harmony has become one of the "biggest" kids there. She now also has a new close friend, Emi. In fact, Harmony calls her "her twin"--and she's mostly right. She and Emi were born on the same day, at the same hospital.

They've started trading names-- other day there were two of the same craft, both labeled "Emi", and to get the correct child to come to the car, I had to ask "Emi" if she was ready to leave. And this morning, Harmony insisted on wearing a dress, because Emi always wears a dress.

I'm waiting for them to be old enough to watch "Parent Trap" and propose a trade...though it would be easy to tell if they switched, since Harmony is blonde with blue eyes, and Emi has brown hair and eyes.

I remember when Harmony was born, and knowing that another little girl was born that day. I had always wondered if they would ever meet, and if they'd be friends. I guess I know the answer to that now!

Thanks, God, for friends. Bless Harmony and Emi's friendship. Help us to be good enough friends with You that we take Your name as ours and start to look more like you.

It's so much fun to see our children have friends. Your post reminds me of the song "What a Friend We Have in Jesus" and I am so glad we do.

Thanks for visiting me.
