"Life is full of meetings and partings. That is the way of it."

Last week in our family we had a parting.

Today we had a meeting.

I became a Great Aunt again. To a beautiful dark haired little angel.

7 lbs 7 oz. If those numbers don't bode well I don't know what does. :)

Our family needed this meeting. Even if she is far away. She's clear in Georgia. That's okay. The pictures of her and her mama (my niece) still bring joy to my heavy heart and a smile to my face.

Meetings are so much more enjoyable. Don't you think?

p.s. points for those who can name the movie I quote in the title.

Life is a circle, unbroken. I think God is giving your family your rainbow. Prayers.

It is interesting, I was just thinking that about life too! It is a circle, it is those births that make the harder times more bearable.

Go Muppets...and of course, congrats on the addition to the family. It's nice to see some coming while others have to leave. :)

There is something sweet about knowing that your new addition met your sister for a brief few days.

Love the gospel plan

I liked M-Cat's comment. It is about coming and going. It is how it was all meant to be.
the joys
the sorrows
I wonder if those who see each other in this quick passing
saying "hey, it was a great life, enjoy yours, choose wisely" and "I'll see you when you come back."
I hope it is like that

Not sure where the quote came from, but I'm glad you used it, I like it.
