52 Blessings—Nephews and Nieces

Photobucket
Hydn and Maddie


I have dozens and dozens of nephews and nieces and always wish for more time and interaction with them. They range in age from mid thirties to not-yet-two and their experiences and views are interesting on everything from hamburgers, heroes and candybars to politics. At least reading what they write (essays, stories, blog posts, shared journal entries and e-mail) helps to close the distance with the older ones. Here is an e-mail Maddie sent me a while ago:

Nephews and nieces are definitely some very happy blessings in my life.

Amen! I adore my nieces and nephews and definitely don't get to see them nearly enough, especially since we moved to Oregon. I feel blessed to still be within driving distance though!

I have just 5 nieces and nephews. I see one niece but once or twice a year. The other four are on of my greatest blessings, too! A lot of my family has asked if the whole reason I didn't want to move was because of the closest two nephews. They certainly were a huge part of it.

I became an aunt when I was twelve to Barb's oldest child, Jaclyn. I was thrilled. It is a whole different kind of amazing. I have 10 neices and 2 nephews and they are all just the neatest people. So blessed indeed.

I'm lucky enough to have two little nieces staying with me right now!
