Embracing My Auntie Role

Today my friend Chrystal came by the office with her cute little baby boy. Ever since I can remember I've always loved babies.

Loved holding them.

Playing with them.

Taking care of them.

Loving on them.

Recently I have been babysitting Savannah & Kate who are a real joy to my heart!

I was ten years old when my baby sister was born and that clinched the deal, I was in love! From that day on I dreamed of some day having lots of babies of my own. But things don't always go as you plan or dream. What was hardest about celebrating my last birthday was facing the reality that this dream may never happen. Oh, don't get me wrong I have been very blessed to have six beautiful nieces and nephews and countless friends with children who I love dearly! So instead of focusing on what I don't have I am choosing to celebrate and enjoy the role of "Auntie" that God has given me. I am so blessed to have so many family and friends in my life that let me share a little bit of their children's lives.
This Auntie is deeply grateful!
Here I am wrapping up a day at the office with a very cute and snuggly Titus.
