It is a bit weird to have two kids at home now, instead of just one. But since they were little, they have been good friends. I have to admit it is nice having another girl around the house too! I keep hearing a lot about Empty Nesters, and I am a bit worried about getting to that stage of our lives, so I am just trying to just enjoy each day while they are here.
I took this photo of Lauren and Lee the other day, and realized how terribly grateful I am... that my kids are all close to one another. What a gift... LOVE is, in a family. They really are best friends with each other, yes they can still fuss and fight but in the end, they always work it out and learn and grow from it. What a concept? I hope their children will have the same type of friendship with each other. Families Are Forever, how grateful I am to know that.
My dear friend just lost her brother in a car accident. She is heart broken and was flying home to help and comfort his family. This same friend knows a lot about pain and suffering, she lost one of her sons at a young age, and also in a car accident. So I am sure this whole thing with her brother has brought back some painful memories. Yet she is amazing, she continues to help and comfort others and stays close to God. She is such a great example to me. So tonight, think about your family, and make sure to tell them how much you love and appreciate them...I am going to.
Good night dear friends!
