This post is dedicated to my two beautiful sisters…
First off my little sister, Aubrey (whom I call, “little one”) graduated from nursing school last weekend!! I am so excited for her and proud beyond belief. She has worked so hard the last two years to finish strong and with honors! She hopes to be a labor and delivery nurse (would love it if she could be my nurse one day..). She takes the biggest test of her life, the Nclux- which is the test you have to pass to be a “real” nurse, on Wednesday. I know that she would appreciate your prayers. She is also the reason we get to come home this summer because she is getting married! What an exciting summer for her! I couldn’t be happier for her and am so thankful for the guy God brought into her life. Can’t wait to celebrate with you in a few weeks Aubs- congrats!
I found out this week that Brooke, my older sister, is prego! I cannot tell you how excited I am about this! I already have 9 nieces & nephews (3 girls & 6 boys) who I love dearly, but I think it will be different to experience it with my sister. And her baby could potentially look like me! 🙂 (maybe…ha) My sister is going to be such a wonderful mom. She has a huge heart, passion for Jesus, loves children (I have a feeling she is going to love having just one 4 year old running around one day instead of 20! she is a pre-K teacher), she is fun, she is compassionate, and the best big sis anyone could ask for. She certainly mothered me and Aubs well over the years 🙂 I can’t wait to see the mother she will become and the father Clint will be. S0. Exciting. Congrats sister!
It is also a little bittersweet because I live on the other side of the world… I knew that the day would come when Brooke would get pregnant while I am living over here, but until it became a reality it was hard to see how hard it really is going to be to be so far away. Luckily she will be getting internet and we have skype. I am so thankful for technology. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes as I write this… but I am also thankful because I do feel like this is where we are supposed to be and am confident that the one who knows all will comfort and sustain me. I am reminded of His grace & provision in my life.
