This has been a great week for the most part. Of course any time spent with family should be great, but when you add in a child you haven't seen in about 5 years...it gets even better.
The young man in this picture is my youngest son who I haven't seen since he was about 6 years old.The picture below was taken one of the last times I got to see him. He is the one on the bottom of the pile.
Big difference, right? I was so excited about seeing him again. I won't go into the particulars of why I haven't been able to see him, but let's just say that over this last 5 years my heart has been hurting but Wednesday made up for a lot of that. We got most of my brothers and sisters together (because none of us had seen him in a long time) and of course the kids too and all had dinner at my sister's house. Talk about a dream come true!
The picture above is most of my nieces and nephews. There are however 4 missing: Christopher and Tim (my older boys), my older sister's daughter Breann, and my brother's daughter Kaitlin, but the rest of them are all there. Well I take that back, there are more than 4 missing, but anyway these are most them that live in town.
This was an awesome day! My husband of almost 3 years had even met this step-child so this was a big day.
So happy to see this kid again!
Have a great day!
