Here is a (rare) loving moment between two sisters:
I use the word rare, because unfortunately that's the way it is right now. Tahlia is very loving; Jazzie.... well, not so much. I love Jazzie to pieces and she is amazing in many ways, but she does have some selfish tendencies. I have had MANY conversations with Jazzie lately about the importance of thinking of others and not just herself. About sharing. About being considerate of other people's feelings.
I just keep thinking that if I remind Jazzie of these things often enough, that one day it just might sink in. Imagine my shock (and delight) when the girls were watching TV this evening and Tahlia got a bit scared. I heard Jazzie say to her: "Are you scared, Talley? Do you want me to come and sit next to you?" She proceeded to sit next to Tahlia and put her arm around her to comfort her.
I was so proud of Jazzie and made sure to tell her so. Maybe she is listening to me after all?
