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.
