It's been some time......

Yesterday was Mother's Day. It was the first Mother's day that I did not get to spend with my mom because she was miles away. It was weird for me to experience that. I am so used to having my mom so close. The move my mom and dad made in November has done two things for me: 1) I have learned about myself as an adult and 2) I have taken it for granted having them so close. I miss each of my parents everyday but thank them for helping me realize I can do this.

The last couple of months have been a whirl wind. The school year is winding down and I made it through my first year as a full time teacher.
This is my dad, uncle Tom, and Grandma Morgan.

In March, I lost my Grandma Morgan (pictured above) and then two weeks later, I lost my Grandpa Nye, leaving me without any of my Grandparents. Oh, how I miss them. I now have a hole inside myself because there were so many questions I wanted to asked and never did. I guess I learned the  hard way not to take family for granted and don't wait to ask questions because you never really know how much longer you will have that person in your life.

Since I posted last, we have a new addition to our family. My brother, Bill, became a father to the cutest little guy ever.
This picture was taken hours after Cutter Jeff Thomas was born. He is such a blessing for our family. It is simply amazing how something so tiny can make such a large impact on people's lives. Cutter is so much fun. He'll be 7 months old in about two weeks and he is almost starting to crawl.

Cutter's happy face, which by the way, is something he does all the time!!! He little grin makes all my worries disappear!! How amazing is that!
