I'm A Great Aunt!!!
Twenty-three years ago, my oldest sister, Lori, made me an aunt for the first time when she gave birth to her daughter, Jessica. I had just graduated high school and was at Lori's house more than my own. When Jessica was born, I got the first little idea of what it would feel like to have my own baby. She was so precious to me...more than I ever thought a baby could be.
Our baby Jessica is now a mother....Emery's mother. My first niece made me a great aunt yesterday. Just as Jessica gave me a glimpse of what it would be like to be a mom, Emery has given me a glimpse of what it will feel like when my children start having babies of their own. I thank God for every year that he gives me to live and experience days like yesterday. These are the moments that we live for....that make life worth living.
