Life goes on…

by Nancy on March 8, 2010

This past weekend, we had a baby shower for my niece Jessica.  She and her husband are expecting their baby boy in May.  It was a bittersweet event for me.  On the one hand, I’m getting ready to welcome my 4th great nephew into this world.  On the other, I’m getting ready to say goodbye to Ben, Mika and Kai (my nephew Mike’s kids)…as they are moving to Texas this week. 

It’s period of adjustment for me.  Just about every other weekend has been spent with these kids and I’m not sure what I’ll do with all the “mothering” I’ve lavished on them.  But I’m taking this experience as an opportunity to practice what I preach.  What I focus on expands.  If I just focus on how much I’m going to miss them – I make myself miserable.  If I think about how fun it will be to visit them in Texas –  I actually get excited about the possibilities!  I do think I will be getting to know Texas quite well in the coming months.

Here’s some pictures from the shower!

Jessica – the new mom-to-be – opening a beautiful hand made blankie!
Mika and Kai – before the crash!
Mika – crashed!

I’m in heaven – as you can probably tell!
The two most handsome men in the world!!!
