The Closest thing to Being a Mom.

November 9, 2007.
I walk into the hospital room.
My mom turns around holding the most precious baby..
And I gaze upon one of the most beautiful faces I have ever seen.
I instantly fall in love.
My heart grew....
And that is the day
I became an aunt.
One of the greatest days of my life.

And when I thought it couldn't get any better than that, my sister had another little girl..
and I give a little bit of my heart away again.

It IS the closest thing to being a mom.

The power of being an aunt (or uncle) is incredible.

I never want to take for granted the power
I have to be an influence in these precious lives.
But it is a choice.
I could choose not to be a big part of their lives, however life would be incredibly dull.

I think of some of the most precious moments over the past 5 years, have been with my nieces.
They never fail to cheer me up, make me laugh, and feel me with such joy!
And I want them to know that their Auntie loves them beyond all measures
and would do anything for them.
I would give my life for those two, no doubt about it!

I know the power of being an aunt, 
because I have been on the other side.
The role my aunts have played in my life are big ones.
And I am blessed to have 7!
They have been some of my greatest mentors.
They will always hold a special place in my heart.

I can only return the favor to God by being the role model to my nieces, 
that my aunts have been for me!

I hope that you take full advantage of your role as an aunt or uncle, if you have nieces and nephews..or when you do one day.
You might have no idea the impact you can have in those lives of your nieces and nephews,
whether young or old!

It comes with great rewards...
 their love.
