best of friends

A friend loves at all times and a brother is born for adversity. 
Proverbs 17:17
As iron sharpens iron, so friends sharpen each other.
Proverbs 27:17
One great thing about having all your kids close in age is that they can be each other's best friends. That has been more and more obvious to me the older the twins get. They, not only play with each other more, but they play with Jack and Hailey more. (and, unfortunately, fight with Hailey and Jack more...) 

I have been doing a study on the Proverbs by Beth Moore on Thursday mornings, at our church, and a few weeks ago it was on friendship and the importance of good, wise friends. It made me think of my children...because no one is closer than your family and no one has the ability to be a true and wise friend more than a sister or brother- no one sees all your faults, your weaknesses, your strengths, your raw emotion, your deepest fears and darkest secrets more than your family!   
The study not only gave me one more reason to be thankful that my kids are all so close in age, but it gave me something new to pray for my children- that they would be wise friends for one another. That they would not only laugh, giggle and play together, but that they would help one another, encourage one another, sharpen each other, and spur one another on to the truth. That they would forgive one another the hurts and not get hung up on petty jealousies, but always look out for each other and look for the best in each other.

  2. Isn't it so much fun to watch how they start to interact with each other?! Ave still doesn't interact too well with the babies...I think she's just at that age, but watching the trio play together is such a joy. They will play for quite some time, before they start crying because they're hungry or something.
