Four births and two funerals

Two deaths in my family and three beautiful babies brought into this world on my husband's side not including our own precious daughter. Its sad and beautiful at the same time. Two lives full of experiences and memories. People who meant the world to their family and friends. People who changed lives and brought love to so many. Those two people are no longer. Their families, children and friends in mourning.
And yet four brand new lives have entered the world. Four beautiful children who have no idea how much joy they bring their parents and families. Four beautiful souls who have their entire lives ahead of them.

Life doesn't stop for one or the other. It really puts things into perspective. Each moment is so precious, each memory everlasting.

Oh, I'm sorry. My husband's great-uncle died yesterday, too.
But three new babies is pretty lovely....
