This evening I held an Open House for Lyla and Mae so that friends who would like to come meet these little miracles could stop by; it was very casual. We had just the right amount of friends stop by, and when I say friends I mean people who are more like family. It was an enjoyable few hours of conversation, holding babies, laughter, food and even a few tears when reflecting on the earliness of Lyla and Mae's entrance into this world and the miracles they are.
As I reflect on this evening, I have a wonderful feeling of gratitude. Gratitude of course, for Lyla and Mae (as well as their parents) and gratitude for such wonderful friends and for their love and support.
I am very much aware that I have a wonderful life with a family whom I love as well as friends who I've adopted as part of my family. I just didn't want this evening to get away from me without recording this special memory.
