Today would have been my sweet nephew Jack’s 2nd birthday. I only got to meet him twice since my sister lives in Ohio but those two times he stole my heart. I do not have any children myself so I do not know that kind of love but I do know how much my heart has expanded since Sam and Jack have entered my life. I wish more than anything that instead of having a heavy heart today that I could be harassing my sister to send Jack’s birthday pictures or feeling jealous that all of the midwest family got to be together to celebrate. Today I am going to try to remember what Jack leaving us way to early has taught me… and that is to live life fully to really appreciate what I have and to love with my whole heart. I love you sweet Jack and miss you terribly.
It makes me happy to remember a little photo shoot I had with Jack and my sister…
For those of you who know my family or you want to see a video we put together of Jack my sister has it posted on her blog www.jacksjoy.wordpress.com
Love you Em. So do Jack and Sam. Always.
Those pictures are so beautiful. They bring tears to my eyes. You are an awesome auntie. Sending you love and hugs.
Beautiful. Love you.
