A good friend once wrote on a letter to my parents that great quote:
“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.”
Unfortunately, our friends George and Marina are no longer in our lives here on earth; however, we have been very blessed to continue to stay in touch with their sons. This past summer, Wes and his wife Christine had twin boys 3 months early. The boys were little fighters! We got to see them while they were in the NICU at a month old, and this past weekend, we got to share some time with them as they came for a visit.
The adorable little guys are now 7 months old and have gone from ~3 lbs each to ~14 lbs. They have so much life and spirit in them (gosh, their Grammy and Grampy would’ve been SO proud!!!). It was really enjoyable to see them growing up, and I know our families will continue to be part of each other’s lives. Even though we never would have met had we not cottaged at the same place in Canada, they are family to us now.
