goodnight girls

kelsey is the first to go down
sometimes mother
sometimes katie
sometimes me
someone will help her go to sleep
always with a prayer
like most little girls
wants a little comfort and company first
she'll ask for a story
loves to be tickled
her good-nights
a little prolonged
always be accompanied
always with a hug

i think
she likes hugs
more than kisses

at seventeen
katie is old enough to put herself to bed
she'll stay up a little later
to read a little longer
she'll come down later in the evening
to wish me good-night
since she was little
always desired 'good-nights'
has always loved kisses

i think
she likes kisses
a little more than hugs

my girls
so different
so unique
so precious

hugs and kisses
kisses and hugs

Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.
-Matthew 18:10
