Ending on a high note

Thirteen hundred miles may separate us, but my Sister-in-Law has been in my thoughts for most of the year. She has taught me so much about how to face adversity with grace and love and courage.

In 2008, she faced a cancer diagnosis, surgery, a canceled honeymoon and chemotherapy.

But, there was a beautiful, intimate wedding, a surprise pregnancy with one determined little baby, and, on Monday, there was a birth.


May the new year bring more and more happiness to her and her family. And, to my newest niece, your aunt cannot wait to get her hands on you.


  1. So sweet! I want to talk to you more about her tomorrow!

  2. Congratulations on the arrival of your beautiful niece, and may her birth be a harbinger of many more good things ahead.

  7. Awww! I love stories with happy endings.

  8. That is great, great, great news!! My love and best wishes to the new aunt and uncle – was it on your Dad’s birthday or the babie’s Dad?? Either way, that is what I love about miracles 🙂

  9. What a sweet little baby and what a story. I hope your sister is more lucky in 2009 (and coming years after that)
