Why am I giving so much away? My twin daughters turned 19 today and I wanted to do something in their honor. They are AMAZING, and I'm not just saying it because I'm their mom. At the very impressionable age of 14 they had to deal with their dad overseas fighting in a war, their mom fighting a debilitating cancer, and a widowed older grandmother moving in while recovering from serious heart surgery. With all of that on their shoulders, there were two options. Give up and rebel, or grow up an excel. They chose the latter and are two of the most compassionate, funny, mature 19 year olds I know.
I normally don't post their pictures, but I have to brag. On top of everything, they are gorgeous!
This is Megan. My firstborn. She is hysterical and loves to laugh. Her compassion runs deep and she works so hard to make everyone around her happy. I could go on and on, but I will save it for a different time.
And my Katie. Excuse me, Kathleen. She arrived one minute after her sister. I gotta tell you, this one is going places. She is creative and spunky with a tender heart all rolled into one.
