true friendship is amazing. As a mother one of the things I want most for my children is good friends.
Did I ever post these pictures? If I did, sorry. As old as these images are (and perhaps also redundant) I can’t resist posting them. Hazel is blessed beyond measure to have a friend like Jo. It just melts my heart that this girl, twice Hazel’s age, treats Hazel like an total equal. She has known Hazel since she was a baby and has always taken her seriously, as a real, bona fide friend. And that’s just what Hazel has needed. I can tell that Hazel feels uber cool and confident when she’s with Jo. She starts acting all mature and grown up so that she can measure up. These pictures document the day when Hazel and Jo spontaneously showed up in the exact same outfit. It’s happened twice. They must be kindred spirits.
Thank you Jo for being such a good friend and for loving my little Hazel for all that she is.
