I’ve been spending a lot of time with my niece, nephew, and sister lately. Partly because were all having a tough go and we are able to distract one another. And partly because we all know the inevitable; these days together are numbered. This is the only family I have, and to know that soon I won’t be able to have them over for sleepovers, or over for dinner and movies. Well, its heartbreaking. Every day, every hour, every minute, every second, its so precious to me. I can only hope that when its all over, I’ll feel joy that these last few weeks I’ve done the best that I can to imprint their faces and laughter into my brain. I pray that I’ll never really have to let them go.
