I am so thankful that my parents were able to be here the last 2 weeks! I ended up getting an infection right after Tate was born, and my mother was truly a BLESSING for being able to help with the new baby while I was recovering. I can't wait for them to hopefully come back and visit again in the fall...it cannot come soon enough. It has been REALLY hard having my parents move so far away when we have little ones. I was raised around my grandparents and was so close to my grandmas...I can't imagine life without grandparents!! I really miss having my mom around too...you get used to that best friend just being a car ride or walk away...it really makes you sit back and think of what is really important...and how short life really is...not to be surrounded with those we love most.
After the years have passed, I hope my husband and I can be such a blessing to our children, as our parents have been to us.
