Love of a sister

At the age of 10 one is hard pressed to tolerate a younger sister very often, let alone show unselfish love. So when this morning, out of the blue, Kelsey chose to do just that I was stunned and proud! It is in times like this God gives you a boost of confidence to say "Way to go, good and faithful servant." At breakfast this morning Kelsey lingered at the table after the others left. After a few minutes she said, "Mom, I want to make Charissa happy. Can I wear a patch with her?"
(In case you don't know Charissa has Amblyopia (lazy eye) and needs to wear a patch everyday! She HATES it!)

The boys wanted to join in the picture as well so I thought I'd put that here. It is cute!
The fantastic four!

This is you know I have been having particular sympathy for Charis lately with regard to having to wear this patch - I'd certainly hate it too!

Thank you Kesley!

For the kids (sorry Sue),

Charissa, I know what a pain it is to wear that patch every day. But you're getting better and better at it...really growing up :-) And Kelsey, you rock! WTG, girl!

And hi boys...see you soon!
