I am blessed with sisters...wonderful, beautiful, sweet sisters. My mother has both sisters and brothers. Troy has an older sister. But my dad, he has one sister ~ who is younger (in fact, about the same age difference as Walker & Hadlee). Based on what I know about their relationship growing up, I know that my dad took care of his little sister like no other. For instance, saving his own money to buy her a dress in junior high! I think they had a very sweet relationship ~ and still do. I often imagine that Walker is to Haddie like my dad was to my aunt.
I am taken aback sometimes when I see Walker taking care of Hadlee. Just the other night at a party for Walker's friend at Chuck E. Cheese, I watched from afar as Haddie couldn't make it up the play area to the slide. Without any prompting, Walker was quick to come all the way back down and scoop her up until she was at the slide (over and over again he helped her). Of course it's not always like this, but it sure does melt my heart when it is...
I love my Walker Man & I love how he cares for his little sister. She's a lucky little girl to have a Bubba like this!
"Brother and sister, together as friends, ready to face whatever life sends. Joy and laughter or tears and strife, holding hands tightly as we dance through life."
