Last night, lying in the "big bed," nursing Claire, and trying to coax Mary Grace to sleep. Claire lets go and turns over to look at her sister. Her hand reaches out, and Mary Grace holds it, laughing a little. They hold hands for a moment, and then Claire turns back to me to nurse. Mary Grace, laying beside her, gently strokes her hair as she falls asleep, and then falls asleep herself.

And I realize... I am so grateful that we were able to give them each other.
