Unfortunately we go many years without seeing family, going on about ten for myself. Thanks to all of the wonderful Social Media sites out there....Facebook, Twitter, and even the ancient Myspace, I can see my family that live thousands of miles away. I can see new members of family and become a part of their life's journey. With family being so distant, I truly hold on close to the family I have here. We had two beautiful and wonderful additions to the family last year! They light up my days and crack me up! They are only 11 months and 1 year, each having their very own personality to last them a lifetime! My nephew and niece (who are cousins! which was a crazy time because they were born 5 weeks apart from eachother!) are such great fun! They are my babies (even though not literally mine) but I make sure to show them so much love and care, as well as our family here! I can't imagine not having them be this close, and I never take that for granted!!
