And Babies Make Five

Last year I wrote about my sister finding the love of her life online. When they wed she got the added bonus of his 4 year old son. She became wife and mother all at once and this week she gave birth to identical preemie baby girls! We are all over the moon mostly because all three are healthy after an early and complicated birth. Talk about being “moved by love” there is nothing more precious than new life. Seeing newborns makes you understand the circle of life more than anything else. Like all parents, my sister will want the best for her children. She will decide what is best in the beginning and as they grow I have no doubt she will echo what generations before her have when she tells her girls, “if it means that much to you” or “if it will make you happy” then I will support you. In the blink of an eye we go from knowing what is best to supporting what they think is best and all along we all have faith that we are making the right decisions. If the decisions we’ve made haven’t all been right what have we done about them?

There is no greater time to reflect than when we are presented with the gift of life. It is a reminder to us all to live ours to the fullest.
