But I'm not really talking about a life/death circle, more of a *relationship* circle, per se...
(and yes, I asked permission before writing all this!)
Sooooo...my brother Dan, who is currently stationed in Colorado at Fort Carson
...and gained a cute little son in the process.
His family here in MA and NY were admittedly quite shocked. But there are plans in the works for all of us to celebrate the marriage sometime next year in Colorado.
And honestly? I think things change once you are in the armed forces and have served combat time in Afghanistan. Priorities, outlook on life, goals.
I get it. I'm happy for him. For them. I just wish they were closer than Colorado.
And speaking of living closer...
My Sis and my Niece are just that. Closer to us. They have moved from Connecticut to Cambridge, MA. Just the two of them. A fresh start. A new beginning.
Celebrating my Niece's 14th birthday last week
It's the Circle of Life And it moves us all Through despair and hope Through faith and love Till we find our place On the path unwinding In the Circle The Circle of Life
