I'm not going to write much right now, but I want to link to some blog posts I've read the last few days that have really touched me.
The first is actually from my stepmom's blog, where she writes about life, family, love and spirituality. (And she has given precious gem names as psuedonyms for all us kids. "Emerald" is my little sister.)
The Perceptiveness of Emerald
God is cultivating such a tender heart in "Emerald," I'm so excited to watch her grow up, though it is bittersweet. Sometimes I wish she would stay my "little sister" forever. She's almost as tall as I am though, so I know that won't happen.
This next one just kinda hit close to home....I won't make anymore comments on it; it just made me think.
