A Little Joy

My brother called last night. They are far enough away that we only see each other a few times a year. This was fine until he had kids.. I love being an aunti. It is second only to being a mommy, and in some ways better (can't spoil your own kids nearly as much as nieces and nephews!). I miss them like crazy. When my hubby's nieces and nephews were small I saw them frequently , a few times a month at least.I loved being a part of their lives. Being a full day's drive away from my niece and nephew is tough, thankfully my brother and sister in law are good about sending pictures, and now that the oldest is talking, whenever they call me they will put her on the phone and she'll chatter away. I understand much of what she says (she is brilliant, her vocabulary is very good for someone so little!). I get to hear all about the snow at her house (it's cold!), who lives in the castle (the princess, the horses, her cousin, tigers), and even get to have tea with her :). Well, last night topped the list of joyful moments... she said 'I love you GuGu'!! (GuGu is Chinese for Aunti). Talk about making my day!! I can't wait to see them again so I can give them big hugs and kisses (and do a little spoiling:)... what? it's my job!)

Thank YOU GOD, for little joys that brighten my day! Thank YOU for the ability to stay in touch with those I love, even though they are far away. Please watch over them and bless them. In JESUS' name, Amen
