Happy Birthday Sweet MFD

Today is my niece's first birthday. It is such a sweet day, but I'm always a little sad on my nieces' and nephews' birthdays because we aren't celebrating with them. Last time I saw MFD she was 6 weeks old and in that perfect newborn stage. I tried to hold her and smell her and soak her up as much as I could because I knew it would be a while before I had the chance to be with her again.

I love my little nieces and nephew so very much and it breaks my heart to be so far away from them. Aaron's brother and sister live 4 hours from each other in the midwest so on big occasions like birthdays they can get together. I have to admit, it makes the sting of not being with family even worse when we are far away and they are together.

I love Northern California and it would be really hard to ever uproot our family but if I ever did it would be to live near them.

I think,Sandie, that we got it wrong. That those of us who moved far from families made a mistake, because it leaves us "alone" in good times and bad.
