My sister in law had their fourth baby early this morning. My brother called me this morning.
My first thought was "Maybe the kids and I should jump in the van and drive to Iowa. 16 hours is so doable."
I just want to snuggle that new little niece.
It makes me sad to think about when I get to meet her.
My cousin was up for homecoming queen last night.
I probably won't get to see her graduate either.
Living life far away from family is hard.
Some days harder than others.
Today is one of the harder days.
