I dug out a pair of Talia's old shoes for Katrina to wear outside and tried a jacket on her for size.
Talia got her jacket & runners on.
I put my coat on and then took it off.
And we set out for a walk to get the mail.
The look of pure joy on Katrina's face at being allowed to go outside and walk free was adorable.
Talia ran ahead on the sidewalk with excitement.
I held two little hands.
One eager, steady, ready to let go and run free but willing to return again.
The other also eager, but stumbling nearby, accepting her need for my hand.
Oh, I love these girls. I love Spring. And I hurt a little inside, knowing that there will never be another springtime like this one in my lifetime.
It was lovely!
