They will lay in Norah's bed like this and watch shows on Norah's computer, sometimes for hours on lazy days like Saturdays. It's pretty sweet. Dwayne and I will often stand in the hall and peek in and watch them snuggle like this. Seeing them love each other is one of the greatest joys for Dwayne and I. I also enjoy it when Norah does things like play a video game, but asks Avril what she should do next. That's even better because Avril can't play so Norah is letting Avril play through her.
The way I see it: if they can love one another, if they can prefer each other and put each other first, etc. then teaching them to go ye therefore and deny themselves and love their enemies and all that will be a piece of cake. It seems to me that the biggest lessons can begin and end with how our kids learn from the little issues that arise from having to do the right thing by their brothers and sisters at home.
"Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law." Romans 13:10
