I am grateful that even though I live far away from most of my nieces and nephews, they still remember me and love me. I was a little worried about visiting because I wasn't sure if some of the younger kids would remember me.
Charlotte was by far the hardest one to win over, but thanks to giving her a dry towel and chocolate she became less and less shy with me.
I am grateful for the time we were all able to spend with each other. It doesn't happen often, but it is wonderful when we can work it all out.
