They aren’t mine, but I will always be there, theirs.
I am one proud Auntie Kerry – and there’s one more K for the day.
When she takes my hand in her small one and shows me downstairs.
When he makes me promise to see that a misplaced toy be returned to its proper place and won’t leave until I promise.
When he lets me in on the secret of playing with his sister’s Legos, when he knows she wouldn’t like it.
When she sneezes her baby sneeze, coos happily, and when she nestles against my chest to sleep.
When she sat between us to have her snack of popcorn on New Year’s Eve.
Even when I am the honorary aunt, or related by blood, I am blessed to have these kids in my life.
***This is my first year of joining the A to Z Challenge and so I’ve decided to post randomly, as a way for new visitors to my blog to get to know me a little better. I look forward to discovering some interesting new blogs too.
