I was looking at my sister's blog today and came across this picture which I think must have been taken recently. As you will notice, I am the only one not there. Although I knew moving so far away would be hard, when I saw this picture I started to tear up a little. I love my home, I love the place I am at in life, I have so much to be thankful for. But...I LOVE my family. I miss them and wish there wasn't so much distance between us. So I just want to take a minute to let you all know how much I love your beautiful faces. I was just thinking the other day as I dropped my kids off at the bus, about just how lucky I was to have had such a fun childhood. We had so much fun together and I am so grateful that my parents taught us the importance of having a close family. I can still remember my mom saying...having friends is important, but one day those friends will have their own separate lives and families. Your family is all you will have, so cherish them. I do.
