Family

It was a crazy few days but I managed to spend some time with every member of my family during my whirlwind trip home.  I saw Tiny T take a few stumbling first steps, I reassured myself that Miss M still knows who I am, and perhaps hardest of all I spent some time with my grandpa who may not know exactly who I am anymore, but who seemed to recognize at least that I was someone he loved.


I am so incredibly blessed to be a part of my family.  Individually they are amazing people, but together we've proven time and time again we can do anything we put our minds too.

I'm often asked how I manage the basics of life while I'm away from home.  The truth is - I'm only able to manage it because I have a great family who helps me out.  A mom who picks up my mail and helps me get the bills paid on time.  A dad who helps me keep up with boring things like taxes and insurance.  A brother who keeps my technology stuff up and running.  And a sister and BIL who watch over my house.  

I know, without a doubt, I couldn't make it on my own.

I'm so glad you had a nice time with your family! I'm sure they were super happy to have you home for a bit! My grandfather suffered from alzheimers for many years and spent quite a few of them in a nursing home...I know that can be a tough and heartbreaking situation.

Your post brought tears to my eyes. We miss you tons already. The first thing Maggie asked when she woke up from her nap after you left was "where's Jamie?" She won't forget you, I promise.

One of my favorite U2 songs ever...

I don't want to think where I would be without my family. Thanks for this post. Beautiful.
