TGIF: Gratitude for Family Changes

Today I am visiting with my family. I came here to see my parents, my nephew, and family friends. Yesterday I got a surprise though as my niece decided to come here for a few days. So I got to see my brother-in-law and my niece too! I remember my niece and my nephew when they were babies. I have watched them grow up from a distance always wishing we lived closer together and I could see them more often. My nephew just graduated from undergraduate school and my niece is an upcoming junior at her college. I enjoyed sitting and talking to these two young adults this afternoon and marveling at the changes I have seen in them through the years. The babies I once held close to my chest, soothed through fussiness, and watched while they slept are now intelligent, responsible, beautiful adults. I feel so blessed to have been a part of their journey.
