The other day the girls were actually sitting next to each other and Courtney was rubbing Alyssa’s hands, Alyssa out of nowhere says, “this is how Courtney tells me she loves me”. I actually had to gasp for air as that beautiful and mature statement hit me. I then responded to her that yes that is her way of saying she loves you. I reminded Alyssa that it has been her way to show her love since she was born. Courtney has always loved rubbing Alyssa’s hands. I then said, “Alyssa, Courtney then knows you love her because you let her do that sometimes.
These moments are brief but beautiful. It is their way to remind me that though they have their tough moments, they certainly do love each other.
