Some days are really great for mothers
A few mile stones in my children's lives are big for me too. This was one of them. We both didn't realize how this ceremony would feel. Rebekah's grandmother talked her into walking as Rebekah didn't know if she wanted to or not. Then Rebekah talked her friend Jennie into walking too. So when Jennie was announced, they said, "Jennie Mariah Ellis walking with her sister...." and I just about cried. Jennie is everything I prayed for when I listened to the boys chattering at night when we put them to bed and Rebekah's room would be silent. Growing up with a sister just a year younger was a great blessing that I dreamed of for my girl. So two beautiful girls walked into a new future.
