Two Peas In A Pod

Aviana's best friend in the whole wide world is a sweet little girl named Lily. Aviana and Lily have the most amazing connection. Last week, Lily came to visit her dear friend for the first time. Sarah held Lily next to Aviana's bedside. One of the cutest conversations I have ever witnessed transpired:

Dave: Lily, did you get a new haircut?

Lily: Looks at Dave and shakes her head no!

Sarah: Lily, you didn't get a new haircut?

Lily: Looks at Sarah, doesn't say anything.

Jen: Lily, would you like to get a haircut just like Aviana's? (Jen, thinking she will emphatically say....NO)

Lily: (Without one bit of hesitation, and in the sweetest little voice) says Yes!!!

She then proceeded to lovingly touch Aviana's hand. This was, hands down, one of the most touching moments I have ever encountered between two best friends!

A true, love without end!


  1. Well I guess I can bring some clippers in and we can really make them twins, that is very nice though, a true friend for sure.

  2. Oh my gosh, so amazing. Being so little, she just knows. What a wonderful connection. Brings tears to my eyes.

  3. That's so sweet. What a tender gesture by little Miss Lily!

  4. That sounds like Lily. She is a sweet girl. This post really touched my heart. Thinking of you guys and praying for you always :-)

  5. our girls have such a special connection. I am so happy they have eachother. Big hugs to avi after her procedure.

  6. amazing the connection of two people, even the littlest ones.

    this story made my day !!

    continuing to read and pray,

  7. Sometimes, the youngest of us have the best insight. I'm sure the visit by Lily was good for both of the girls.

    Continuing to hold Aviana, the family, and her medical team in my thoughts & prayers.

  8. That's awesome that they have such a close bond. Because our mom had breast cancer at such an early age, us girls know that it's a possibility in our future. We got to talking about it and all said "well, I'd shave my head if you were losing yours." and then it was a mutual pact.

    It's so sweet that Lilly would want to make her hair like Avi's. At that age they are so honest and so innocent, and some of the things they say just melt your heart.

  9. Tears in my eyes over this one. How wonderful to have a friend like Lily at such a young age. Praying for continued advances for your beautiful little girl. V's Grama
