Auntie thoughts

I know I've said this before, but I really love being an auntie. I can't express my gratitude enough for my nephews, and also the new nieces that have joined our family this year through Megan's marriage to James. The first time I heard my oldest nephew Kalin's cry in the delivery room, my heart grew 10 times bigger. I was in love with that kid from day one. It was hard to imagine how I could love any other child as much. However, as other siblings began having children, I was amazed at how much I loved Kai, then Gavin, Ryan, Owen, and Aidan. Later the Tucker's - Hunter, Lauren and Jadyn. I am in awe to realize that no matter how many people we love in our lives, our heart always has room for more. It's almost unfathomable to imagine how much I'll love my own children someday.

Dear nephews and nieces, and those which will surely come - auntie loves you.
