I have been thinking over the last few days (plane rides are good times to think I find) about the various roles I play in my life and how to balance them all.
I also got to be an Aunt for the week - a role I very seldom get to play. I have to say it's an awesome role - all the fun without the responsibility!! I loved getting to know the nieces and nephews and we had lots of fun. I did the Cha Cha Slide with Amy and Josh (I think??) and got beaten at Wii more than once, baked and iced cupcakes and read lots of stories and I even went sledding (I am not sure who was more surprised me or them:).
And so many other roles....... friend, godmother, dance bus driver, sister-in law, cousin, niece etc etc....
I am grateful for all the roles, new and old and re-found and re-fined, here's hoping I can do them all as well as I want to.
