A Letter to My Daughters: Reflections on Life and Carnival Rides
The carnival at night is where reality and dreams collide. Lights, music and motion all spin together to create a fantasy, just as sugar and air become cotton candy.
When I think about the childhood memories I want you girls to have, this is one of them.
I want you always to remember your favorite ride-buddy: your sister. I pray you take each other along on this ride of life, because life goes up and down and makes you sick and dizzy sometimes, and having a sister to journey with can be just the ticket. I remember the day we found out we had lost our baby, when my world felt upside-down, and my sister, Auntie Sissy, called and talked to me through her tears, and that meant everything to me.
Hannah, don't forget how Natalie makes you laugh. Her humor will help you on a down day.
Natalie, Hannah loves to protect you. If you never need her, she will feel honored to be there for you.
