Forever Changed

Can you look back to an event in your life and say, "my life will never be the same?" I have had a few such moments, but few quite as special as January 19, 2006. On this day, three years ago, my precious niece was born. I can't explain the feeling that I had when my Mom came into the waiting room and announced that my sister had just given birth to a beautiful baby girl. As she began telling us about her weight, length, eyes and hair, I remember thinking...I am an Aunt. There is a little baby girl a few doors down that will one day see me and say "that's my Aunt Lindsey."

The smile she put on my face the first time I saw her is still there today. If possible, it just gets bigger and bigger as she gets older. I'm so proud of the little girl that she is. Her heart is tender, but she is so full of spunk. The past 3 years have been filled with smiles, laughter and wonderful memories...at the center of many of those is a little girl by the name of Emma Kate.

Forever Changed...Forever Grateful! I love, you EK!
