Tonight we had to say good bye to very close friends of ours who have been transferred across the country. It was very difficult and bittersweet. We are so excited for their family and the adventure they are about to experience. On the other hand, and being selfish...I am going to miss them terribly. We will be using Skype and other means to keep in touch. Even though it will not be the same, it will do until we are able to see each other again.
It was interesting to watch all the kids say good bye to each other. Marianna is very sensitive and I know she was sad. I was sad too. How do you explain to a seven year old that it will be okay and we will see them again? I wish these days didn't have to happen, but I know it is part of life. I wish our friends the best and cannot wait to see how they love their new home.
Well, we officially have a toddler...Sofia had a great 2nd birthday. It is so hard to believe she is 2 already. My baby is growing each and every day. She is such an independent little girl. Along with being independent she is so strong willed. The temper tantrums have come full swing. This is going to sound cruel to some, but it is very amusing (at times) to watch her have a tantrum. She will be wailing for whatever reason she seems fit. Then at the drop of a hat, she will turn around and laugh. It's such a learning phase for her (and us). She is trying to figure out her emotions and self control. What a hard thing to do. Some adults still do not have it figured out =)
We are getting ready to have family in town for a few days. The girls are super excited. They love having company. It is so fun to watch them with family members. It's such a special time and we have learned to enjoy and savor these moments. Wishing you all a peaceful night!
In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
