Welcome my new niece Sloane Elizabeth to this world! She came last night at a little after 2am, from what I have seen she looks absolutely perfect.
It's amazing how much love these babies are born in to. Can you imagine getting off a plane with about 30 people waiting for you? They have been circling the airport for a few weeks just waiting for the moment they hear you're going to land. When they hear the plane is in the area they park themselves at the gate and wait patiently, and there they will stay no matter how many times the flight might be delayed. None of these 30 people have ever met you, but they all love you with every ounce of their being, and think that you're the most beautiful thing they've ever seen- no matter how tired you might be from the flight home. You're greeted with tears of joy, hugs, kisses, laughter, and massive genuine smiles. What it must feel like to be in a room filled with nothing but pure joy. Can you imagine how amazing life would be if everyday was was filled with as much love and happiness as the day we were born? Definitely a thought I'm going to try and keep in the back of my mind as I go through my day.
Give your own babies an extra hug today and enjoy your blessings.
Life is perfect today!
