A good friend of mine had a baby last week. It is her first baby and he came about three days early. I am so excited for her, but I don’t envy the changes she’s about to experience.
Her baby made me think of my nephew, Jack, mainly because she was thinking about naming her baby Jack. (She ended up choosing a different name.) My nephew is two now and is becoming quite the little character.
He can read about 30 words now and is becoming much more conversational. He makes me think about the future and what I need to do to be sure that if I’m blessed to be here as long as I’d like to be, that I will be able to enjoy my time with him and to give him what he wants and needs.
