Loving My Niece From Afar

Loving My Niece from Afar
Perhaps one of the saddest things about out current culture is the distance between loved ones.  It’s funny me because for the first part of my life, I couldn’t wait to get away, to get out on my own.  Then God gives you things like nieces and you wish you were closer.  I just wanted to take a moment and tell my niece Ellie, “I love you and every time I see you face I smile.”  It is funny how God makes space in our busy lives to love a child.  And I love this one….how can you not?

Also, I apologize to Ellie.  Before she was born, I made a comment regarding Milan and Jessica’s name choice.  They didn’t know what they were having or what they would name it.  Just a few hours before she was born I said, “Milan and Jessica are probably going to name their child something dumb like Eloise.”  At 3am I get a text, “Welcome Eloise ‘Ellie’ Kosanovich into the world.”  Oops.  Please forgive me J

  1. Awww! Don't make me cry! We miss you too! But you'll be glad to know Eloise can pick out each and everyone one of her aunts and uncles thanks to all of the family pics we have all over the house. And she definitely knows your voice by now ;).
