I am grateful to know how well my five nephews up North are growing up–from the oldest at 10 years of age to the newest at a couple of weeks old.

For two of them (the oldest, D, and his little five year old brother, J), they have had to go through several drastic changes over the last couple of years due to their parent’s separation and divorce proceedings.

It is great to see D helping his mom care for his younger brother, and I think the two brothers are beginning to find their way somehow and growing into their new family structure with less anger and pain. I hope that things will continue to go positively for them.

I am grateful for one more day with my extended family… for a bit more sharing and bonding.
