so proud.


Normally my posts don't revolve around personal matters, but I couldn't resist sharing a bit of news. my sweet niece was born last week! I am so blessed to have been allowed to help out with the delivery. I got to stand by my sister's side just about the entire time. you can bet this little one is going to be spoiled.

 
 I will say that I didn't expect to be so emotional. I almost feel like it was ME who gave birth. I know that's totally silly because I didn't endure one speck of pain; but standing by my sister, coaching her, counting for her, it made my heart race! Once it was all over, I couldn't help but release some of that pent up emotion.... of course, they were some of the happiest tears I have ever shed!
