Yesterday my baby sister had her first child. I am extremely proud and happy to be a first time aunt on my side of the family, but with all this comes emotions and thinking that I did not expect. I have always wanted to be close to my family but life took some twists and turns and I moved 2 states away. Now that I am not close to my sister, I am feeling sad.

She was not able to be there when my 3 kids were born and now I am not there for her baby boys birth. It's extremely difficult to know that I will be missing out on being there for my first nephew. Now I see what she was talking about when she told me she hated not being in her nieces and nephews lives. I knew it was hard, but now I am feeling the rawness of it.

It's amazing how life changes cause us to analyze our mortality, think about what is important to us and try to rearrange things to make them work for us. No matter how much I want things to go my way, I am trusting that God is in control and He knows what is best for me. My life is great where I am, I would not change that, but I still want to be closer to my family.

I want to be there for BB birthdays, and Christmas and all those things....I guess me and snail mail are gonna be best friends from now on! LOL...
