One of my nieces holding her cousin and little sister. She is almost as big as her cousin and he is 6 months older!
It was an eventful week! I feel like I am recovering from my school year, the hectic pace of running everywhere and hoping to figure out a way to slow things down a bit.
I got another new nephew earlier in the week, where I am able to be a doula at the birth!
Then this weekend, I was in charge of our annual homeschool book sale and that was, as always a lot of work, but also a lot of fun! I love selling books and helping people with them. You get to do a lot of organizing and work hard, but it is nice!
My aunt is struggling for her life right now which cast sort of a pallor over the week, and I am hoping and praying for a miracle for her. But, I know also that she is in Someone’s hands bigger than mine. My uncles are coming this week and I think one of her daughters to possibly say goodbye, which just tears my heart out. I have not wanted to go here for awhile.
I was thinking about how life begins with the birth of a baby and how quickly life goes by and ends, sometimes before we are ready to go. It gave me the sobering reminder to treasure each moment that I have, savor the family moments, cuddle the babies, and don’t spend so much time running around like crazy.
I am not the most accomplished person in the world, I spend most of my time working for other people, but I have found that if I am poor, but am rich with memories, that is worth it.
My aunt is one of the most beautiful people that I have known. I am going to miss her dreadfully if she leaves us.
