My heart is breaking today. No one died, but I feel like a piece of me is missing.
A big day for the family, my niece who is actually my cousin but since my cousin is like my sister her babies are my niece and nephew... confused?
I saw the baby girl come into the world and was amazed. Not being a mom, seeing the process was magical. A little messy but magical nevertheless.
As I was saying about the broken heart; I missed my sister today. Coming home tonight after the excitement of the day something was missing. And it hit me, she is missing. Obvious? Yes. But I didn't have a chance to really think about it until right now.
I wish you were here Cath. I wish that seeing you was a small drive away and not days worth of driving. I wish you could have been in the room as the baby girl made her entrance. I wish this week was different on so many levels. I wish my big sister was here.
Bittersweet describes today.
PS - Baby photos coming... :)
