Sadness and Happiness

How can both exist on one such day? The far ends of the spectrum. Black and white. That is today.

The happiness is that a baby boy will come into the world today. A sweet, precious boy that will be so loved and cherished. A baby boy who I can't wait to spoil. A baby boy that will someday call me Aunt 'Nana'. A baby boy who will have such an unbelievable mama that he won't even know how lucky he is. If you have a minute today, say a prayer for my little sister, Embee, who is bringing that baby boy into the world as I type this? (Oh, and guess what he is wearing home from the hospital...the Baby Bolero I knit for him!!!!! Woot!)

The sadness is that we found out this week that my mom's only sister, my auntie, has brain cancer. It has spread and at this point it's not looking so good. I will have more info later today after she sees another specialist. Can you light a candle and say a prayer for my Auntie June? She is the most loving, wonderful, caring and giving auntie ever. I'll never understand why things like this happen to such amazingly beautiful people but I do know that all things work for the good and that what will be will be. I'm hoping and praying for a miracle. Will you join me?

Love and hope to each of you today.

I'll send my thoughts and energies to your whole family. Healing thoughts to your aunt, thoughts of strength to your sister and new nephew, and positive energies to all of you.

so sorry to hear about your aunt, will definitely say a prayer for her.

Can't wait to see a pic of your new nephew in the bolero you knit. Easy labor vibes coming her way..

Why does life have such ebb and flow? I will pray for two miracles to be present in your life.

I will be thinking of you and your family...

It is hard when your emotions are at both ends of the spectrum.
