A Happy Heart: Bjorn

Remember my sister Britney?

One of the best things about my life is my family.
I truly believe that I have the greatest parents and the best siblings. 
I have been blessed way beyond what I probably deserve, and I am grateful every day for each one of them. I have such wonderful and happy memories of my family, and it's those memories that make me have a strong desire to create the same thing for our kids. 

I want them to be close to each other. I want them to stay close to each other. I want them to know that when it comes down to it, it's your family that matters most.

Onto Britney.

She's wonderful.

There are many words in the dictionary I could use to describe Britney. 
And then she would sit and argue with me on almost all of them.

(you know it's true Britney)

She is amazing to me. 

She is every sense of the word.
She is talented.....beyond what's she'll ever be willing to admit to.
She's wise.....wiser than she thinks.
She's humble.....and I wish she could see herself through my eyes for just one day. She could then see how amazing the people around her think she is!
She's an incredible mother.....her kids are so very lucky.
She's creative.....and I pick her little creative brain often.

See? She's AMAZING!

And on top of all those things, 

She has 5 darling kids.
I love them and miss them dearly. 
Having them so far away creates MUCH unhappiness in my heart. :(

Her newest little addition is the other half of my focus today.

This is Bjorn.

You have to admit, he is deliciously CUUUUTE!

Recently she shared some photos of Bjorn and all I could do was laugh. I got back on our family website yesterday and I just laughed some more. Every time she took a picture of him, he would make these funny faces.

The top middle one makes me have a hearty gut giggle E.V.E.R.Y. time I look at it!


I'm grateful that I have so many incredible sisters.
I'm grateful for the relationship I have with each one of them.
Today, I'm grateful specifically for Britney and for the sweet relationship I have with her.

I'm especially grateful that I'm an auntie to so many cutie-cuties.
I love every single one of them.

But, today, sweet little, funny Bjorn makes my heart happy.

I totally agree with everything I have read on here today, but the part about Britney, well, it made me cry. She truly is an amazing woman, filled to overflowing with talents and love. She is a woman of faith, humor, tender-hearted, and oh soooo funny. Her children are cute beyond cute and such great kids. Bjorn, well, I hate it that he doesn't live right next door to me. As far as kids growing up, it just isn't fair!!! Enjoy every moment, it goes by way too fast and then you too will be sitting home along with only the tv to keep you company.
