Thankful Thursday

Caleb and my favorite sister Amy

I am so thankful for this girl!  She loves my boy like her own and has really gone above and beyond for us during all of this.  Doing much more than just giving Caleb dinner and a bed, Amy has calmed him when he gets upset, hugged him when he misses his family, and brought him up to visit numerous times just because I missed him!  Caleb isn't exactly the easiest boy in the world, but Amy has taken it all in stride because she loves us and knows we need the help.

I've always loved my sister and have grown very close to her in our adult years, but she has demonstrated her love and dedication to our family in new ways in the past three months.  I seriously don't know what I would do without her.  She calls or texts me often just to see how Abby is doing, and that's not easy to do when you're a busy mother of 3 +1!  (the +1 is Caleb!)  We've cried together quite a few times since Abby's birth, and I have been able to share with her a lot of my fears and frustrations that are hard to put into words.  She just knows.

So if you see Amy around, give her a big hug and thank her for being there for us.  She's the best sister anyone could ask for. 

I love you Amy!  Now stop crying.  :)
