I've been an Aunt for three years now and it's an amazing, rewarding, and blessed role. My best friends have allowed me to step into their lives and embrace, adore, and even mold their children. Both Niki and S give me free reign with their kids and let me fully and completely enjoy them. Since February, I have been a nearly daily presence in Nathan and Lorelei's little lives and there is no better feeling. God bless Niki for letting me run amok and interfere so deeply with their daily lives that my niece and nephew love me so fully.
I don't take my role lightly (well, sometimes I do!). I truly try to be a good influence in each of the four little lives that are mine to "Auntie" over. I pray for them daily, keep them in my hearts always and uplift them whenever possible.
Thank you, Niki and S, for giving me these four incredible blessings that bring tears to my eyes and joy to my heart!
