Baby Shower & My Sister

I'm tired today - didn't fall asleep until 4am because my head was spinning with details about what still needs to get done. Also the baby was particularly active - kicking my ribs and digging into my pelvic floor.

I thought I might show you pictures of the Baby shower this past weekend. They're below. It was wonderful. I was reminded that I have a great support system here in LA and I marvel at how God has brought so many wonderful people into my life these past four years.

The only thing missing from the day was my sister's presence. It would have been a little hard for her to make it since Annie lives in New Zealand.

This makes me think about my own past as a missionary kid. I rarely saw my grandparents, aunts, and uncles. I didn't really get to know my family until the age of 14 when we moved back to the states for good. This separation didn't seem that traumatic at the time. I just remember that I loved getting gifts from my grandparents in the states, and I loved having my American cousins come visit.

I also remember that Family Reunions were really exciting. I loved them, and I think they were particularly special for everyone. There's something to be said about not being with your extended family for years at a time and then all of a sudden being dropped into their company. You marvel at each other and the ways that you've changed and grown and matured. With each consecutive visit you seem like new creations to one another.

It's a little strange to think that my kids are going to have this same experience with their "Aunt Annie" and her family.

At any rate, I can't wait for my sister to come visit in January and meet her new niece! We miss each other for sure, but I know God will touch what little time we have together and make it memorable.

Here are some pictures of the Baby Shower:

"Radiant" is the word I'd choose...

Like "they" always tell expectant moms: "You're glowing!"

I remember those nights when I'd lie in bed, thinking, "So much to do and so little time," over and over and over! Praying for peaceful rest....
