Happy Birthday Natalie!

I am so excited that it is my sister Natalie's birthday so that I can honor her for the wonderful sister that she is. For those of you who don't know, Natalie drove 11 hours with her two beautiful twins Jenica and Xavier to come spend the week with me. We were hoping to hear the results of my second biopsy during that week. We were both a little jumpy every time the phone would ring but other than that we had an awesome time. We celebrated Hunter's birthday, went to an amusement park and just hung out. We laughed and had fun playing with the kids in the pool. We had fun cookouts and most importantly I felt the love of my sister. I know she would do anything for me as I would do for. I remember and reflect on the day that I gave her the first round of bad news and she told me to "breathe" and that everything was was going to be alright. She told me that it was now her turn to remind me of all the things that I always tell her to help her. I need that right now. Well, it came to the end of her visit and we still didn't have the final results. We were sad to see the week end but we were left with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. I put together this montage on Monday. I found an appropriate song out of nowhere. I've never heard of it before and put all of our pictures to the music. It was special then and then the news came in on Tuesday and it made the even more appropriate and special. So I have been saving it to share with everyone on Natalie's birthday. I love you Nat and think the world of you. Thank you for being there for me and making it a wonderful week spent together. Have an awesome day. I know I will with you and the kids in my life. We miss you!
