Today We Celebrate...

I am so very lucky to be an aunt!

I love that I get to be their aunt!  Yesterday, the youngest of my nieces and nephews turned three.  How is that possible?  I can not believe that this girl is that old!  Anyway, I digress on my disbelief.  Since yesterday was her birthday, today, we CELEBRATE!!  Her Mommy and Daddy decided postpone the party with all of her friends until the backyard isn't a swamp.
So, her family surrounded her and got to love on her!  It was a GREAT day!

I simply LOVE every single thing about this girl!  She delights my heart.  What a joy she is!
Her hugs are the best things!  She melts into your arms.  

This girl is a mess!  Her little, sassy personality is so much fun!  She LOVES to sing.  
She loves to tell her daddy and her brother, "No!" and then smile!  
She is hysterical, and her laugh is contagious!

She might be a little sneaky!   LOVE HER!!!

She wants to be just like her Bubba!  So, she got a scooter and a bike!  So fun!

LOL!  All of my nephews and nieces make the BEST expressions!  
This one....oh this one....she is part of my heart!

Little Miss Hollywood!

Watch out comes Layten Brynn!

I might just be a little biased, but I believe I have the BEST nieces and nephews in the world!  
I am so thankful that I get to love on them!!!

Watching and Waiting

There have been a handful of times in my life when I have felt like I was standing in the middle of a busy station watching everyone go in different directions.  They all have a calling, a purpose or a passion to take them on the next journey.  

I stand watching.  

Not knowing which direction my next step should be.  Not sure of where the road leads for me.  

I stand watching.  

Lovers heading in one direction.  Professionals heading down a different path toward their next big deal.  Families laughing down the road of memories.  

I stand watching.  

The happy girl is taking another tunnel with many following her.  People slipping by me to follow their given or chosen path.

I stand watching.  

Not daring to take another step.  
Not sure.  

Tonight, I feel stranded in the middle of the station of life........
which way to turn....

I have been the lover hand in hand.  I have been the professional.  I have definitely been the cheerful one who has many friends along her way.  

Yesterday, I would have said I was any one of these and I would have fervently told you that I was following His path....

Today, I am standing.  
I am watching.  
I am lost in a storm, and I desperately need to feel His love and gentle guidance.


So, I stand watching.....and waiting.
