my aunt and uncle came down to visit us today. they were in austin over the past few days from the sf bay area and wanted to drive down to houston to spend some time with us. it is not often that i get to see my family and so of course i was delighted and looking forward to their company. sandy is my mothers sister, tim her husband. they are two of the kindest people i have ever known. i love them both dearly and hold them close to my heart.
birdie instantly took to them as most people do. the last time we saw them was at the wedding (last november) for a brief time. i hope to see more of my dear aunt and uncle very soon. there is this warm and calming feeling of home when they are around. a rare yet always welcomed feeling. until next time.
