It's the images of my nephew and three nieces that I want to see. My heart is happiness and sadness all rolled into one. I love looking at their beautiful little faces staring back at me. Dimples, long eyelashes, tiny fingers and heads thrown back in laughter...
But instead of feeling sad, I will look at these pictures. I will cherish each phone call. And I will remind myself that every time I answer the phone and hear an excited, "Hi! Aunt Mimi!" it's almost as good as being there... Almost.
