Sorry Maime, Had to Do This





I know that she is going to be incredibly embarrassed about this, but I just had to call her out on this. Our local newspaper has had a section running called "Angels Among Us" and she truly is one. My cousin Jaime has been such a godsend to me and my family. She is one of those people that, in when looking back, has helped mold me into the person that I am today. For Christmas Jaime and I exchanged names in the family exchange. With this we are getting pedi's together. I can't tell you how excited I am about this...not because it is a pedicure (okay there's that) but just the opportunity to get out of the house for some girl time.
Jaime also went above and beyond the call of duty so many times before too. Including this Christmas when she had a housekeeping crew (yes, a CREW!) come and deep clean my house before company and Baby Calvin arrived so I wouldn't have to worry about it. You know no idea how much this meant to me and how much of a blessing it was.
Last but not least I am thankful to Jaime for her relationship and involvement with Emma. Aunt Jimmy as Emma calls her loves her so much and Emma is always so excited at the prospect of seeing her.
Now Jaime I know you are reading this and so you can never mention this because this is just one of those things I can only talk about when I am not face to face with someone. But I am sorry for shutting you out and not talking to you after your dad passed away. I have no idea what my deal was aside from I was being a brat. I was depressed, it wasn't just with you, but it was completely unforgiveable and I am so sorry. I love you just as if you were my true older sis and I am so glad that you are in my life and Emma's.
And as you always tell me...you are such a rockstar!

Pin It!

Awe shucks!!

Those are the nicest words anyone has ever said (or typed) about me. Of course, they are hard to take when I don't think what I do is all that special. I think you and your family are special. I am honored to be given time to spend with you guys. The little girl that Emma is becoming is such a reflection of you and Nick. You guys have chosen the best life for her by surrounding her with the people that love her the most.

I am glad that you guys have been blessed to bring another baby into this world. Any day a new little Witwer will be joining us (as if you didn't know that)- how exciting. I am almost as excited for him to get here as you are to have that little foot, that seems to have embedded itself in your lung, removed. Remember I am here to coach you, "Push him out, pull him out, waaaaayy out."

Lastly, I would be remissed if I did not recipricate the "thanks for being you" comment. I tell you all the time that you are a rock star, because you are. I am glad to have you by my side while we trudge through some of the crazy family dysfunction that seems to show up at each family gathering. Having a partner or a co-conspirator makes those events bearable. Whether its a ranting session or just the feeling that the person sitting next to me on the bench understands, I am blessed to have you on my side.

Thanks for the kind words and thanks for being you!!

P.S. nice pictures!!
