The Greatest of Miracles Has Happened
Today is my nephew's birthday. I am officially a 'Hala' (Aunt) now... My sister-in-law Wendy has given birth to a healthy boy... I am so grateful to her and to my brother, Cenk for this wonder of wonders...
I have been waiting for this day with bated breath, wondering and contemplating all the wonderful things my little nephew is going to be and longing for the moment when I can hold him in my arms. Unfortunately, I am thousands of miles away from him and have to wait another month before I can do this but I feel the connection in my heart all the same. I still don't know what he looks like or what his name is going to be. I did hear his voice as I talked to the proud father on the phone; it was the sweetest melody. Nothing really matters except the fact that he is amongst us. For months now, I have been wondering what he will be like and what kind of unique qualities he will posses, as well as who he will take after. I can't wait to meet him in person. This is definitely a case of unconditional love. No matter what happens from this day forward, he will be my very special person.
This is the message I want to whisper in his ear...
'Welcome to the world my little love.
May your days be filled with joy and harmony.
May wisdom and compassion be your guiding light
And always know that, you are already the Apple of my Eye'
