This evening, RT, Sunshine, Sweet Stuff and I decided to watch “Because of Winn Dixie” after dinner.  Both the girls sat in my lap – one on each side with a blanket over us – snuggling together.  Sunshine started getting drowsy and put her head against my shoulder.  Within a few minutes she was sound asleep – cuddled up against my left side, her soft hair next to my face.  Sweet Stuff, cuddled on my right, looked at her younger sister.  She reached over with a smile, and smoothed her hand across Sunshine’s face – carressing her with love and big sisterly care.

And there I was – in the middle of one of the most tender moments I’ve ever witnessed.
