Children are such a blessing. I cherish the time I get to spend with my niece, Melanie. When life throws us curve balls, we have to find ways to look up and see the good that can come. Every experience, good or bad, is a journey. My brother and sister-in-law are incredible people. While going through one of life's great mysteries and overcoming obstacles life throws at them, they are coming out stronger people. They are two of the most compassionate souls, and all the time I get to spend with their family of three makes my heart full.
