Happy Easter!

Last year, we spent Easter with our twin nieces. It was their first Easter and it was a nice opportunity for us to spend a little time with them. This year, we spent Easter with our 6 year old nephew. We hadn't seen him in awhile, plus he recently went through an intense health scare.
Despite being on opposite sides of the family, these children have something very important in common: they are all our Godchildren. We take this role very seriously, and it is important to us to spend time with all three of them. That's not always easy, though, since none of them live incredibly close to us.
This distance makes spending time with them more than just a quick trip; it's an undertaking that must be planned in advance. My job requires that I request time off more than a month ahead of time. If something comes up unexpectedly, I often can't make it. When it comes to the children in my life, this inability to drop and run breaks my heart.
