Someone to come home to

My sister was here with her baby for about a day. Yesterday when I came home from work, they were standing on the porch and the baby was very excited to see me come home, even before I pulled into the driveway. She slobbered all over everything, spilled her little puffy things all over the carpet, put a Hershey's kiss into her mouth whole...and still wrapped (oops)...and I couldn't work without her being in the middle of it. Still, I didn't care at all, because it was so nice to have someone to come home to. Before bed, they both gave me a hug and this morning I had someone to talk to while I was getting ready for work.

I don't think my desire to have a family has ever been as solid as it is right now.

You know shy it wont be easy having your sister and your niece there but I will say this.. When one door closes another one opens.. Maybe its the Universe providing a family for you right now and providing for exactly what you need right now here in this moment.. Enjoy it because we all know time flies and take care of each other.

You never know the next big blessing might be your own family but for now as they say you are exactly where you are supposed to be.. I wish I could really believe that (lol)........................

Well it sounds like you will really enjoy their visit. How is your sister doing with everything that has happened?

She seems happy, at least when she's with me.  I was just thinking this morning that she seems more herself- as in before the bf.  She use to be one of those teenagers who would take endless pictures of herself and post them on facebook, which to me says she had no problems with how she looked.  She stopped doing that with him.  Just yesterday, she posted two more pictures like that, and a few weeks ago there were others.  She's wearing "real" clothes again instead of just comfy clothes.  It could be the depression meds, but I think being away from someone (or two someones, if you count our mother) who picks at your self esleem makes a huge difference.

Glad she's feeling more like herself. 

I lived with my sister part-time during her second pregnancy.  She was put on bed rest.  I reveled in looking after her first born during that time.  It's kind of like what Free indicated, sometimes you get lucky and can help someone else out - but during the process, get something you need in return which, for me was that urge to nurture.  Such a gift . . .

Nothing like a little baby's smile & endless supply of hugs to cheer you up after work.

Well lets hope she realizes that she feels better and decides to stay in your town for awhile. Whether she stays with your or gets set up on her own it seems like the distance from those negative people is better for her.
