may your paths always lead back to each other

These two have had a special bond since day one. I sat watching them last night. They were lying on the floor, head to head, discussing a book they were looking at. Such a seemingly simple occurrence and it struck me so forcefully. They love each other. They love being together, talking together, and playing together. I can't claim this is my doing. I just sat back and watched it all happen. Sometimes I feel excluded, and I know Katie does, from their intense relationship. Don't worry, it isn't all rainbows and unicorns. They still have the typical sister/brother spates. Teresa gets annoyed with Sam's hovering and his need to control things, which winds up hurting his feelings. And sometimes Sam needs his space and can't explain this well to Teresa and she winds up thinking he doesn't like her. But most of the time, they fit together like salt and pepper. They sleep over on each other's floors and stay up late giggling. It's not unusual for them to walk together hand in hand. When Teresa is sick, it is Sam she wants to comfort her. When Sam is looking for a partner in crime, his first choice is always Teresa. No matter what happens or is said, they are there for each other, strolling side by side and hand in hand.

OH MArie, I could not agree with you more. I can attest to it, even on the bus, they sat together. I remember one time I suggested Sam sit with anyother child. all I can say is I changed my mind real fast, his face oh boy!!!! And Teresa looked at me like i had 10 heads for even suggesting such a ridiculous thing.... They are 2 of a kind, I hope they continue for the rest of their lives like that!! Wish my kids did!!!!
