Today, I am thankful for sweet nieces and nephews.
We don't get to see them as often as we would like.
They grow so fast.
It would be easy for us to be as strangers - to be merely the picture on the wall or fridge.
We recently visited with 8 of the bunch.
I am thankful that they each warmly welcomed us.
I am thankful that some are ready to come for a visit (on their own).
I am thankful for some who call or email for advice or information.
I am thankful for thankful for the stories that keep us "alive" in their hearts and minds.
I am thankful for their friends who adopt us as well.
