I was so blessed to be able to make it out for one day this weekend to Utah to be at the memorial service for my sister's sweet twin baby boys that were born 4 months too early. The details are her's to share or not, but we are all grieving with them and it was so nice to be together even though it wasn't for very long.
Her baby boys were buried next to their four uncles, which is truly both bitter and sweet. The four uncles are my mom's babies that also had short lives and we all think that they must have been there to greet my sister's babies in heaven.
Everyone takes their family for granted at times, but it's difficult times like these especially that reminds me what an incredible family I have - immediate, extended, and those "adopted" friends who aren't technically family but may as well be. It was so nice to be surrounded by my family this weekend and to be able to hug and cry with my sister.
