I’m very thankful for my large extended family. In particular this evening, I love all my nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-greats.
I’ve been privileged to be an aunt since before I was even conceived. One of my nephews was two years older than me. Therefore, being an aunt is my longest standing aspect of my identity, and I’m grateful for that.
It’s such a precious part of my life to get to love on all the little ones that come into our family. My older nieces and nephews were so much closer to my age that they seemed more like cousins/siblings/friends. Their children and their children’s children bless my heart every time they greet me with a hug, even the ones who have become teens and are slightly embarrassed to be hugged 😌.
Thank you God for the honor of being an aunt in this crazy, wonderful family of mine! ♥️
