We had the most beautiful weekend with Alex's sister and niece. They took a little road trip from Chicago to see Eleanor, and us. It was relaxed. We didn't plan much. Actually we didn't plan at all. We just enjoyed each others company.
Karina, Alex's sister, is a role model for me. She is genuine and sweet and caring and warm. She exudes so many traits that I look to as a model for how I want to be in Christ. She is a loving mom whose children respect and adore her. She is a woman who honors and cherishes her husband and I can learn so much about how to be a wife from her. Her center and her rock is the Lord and her guide book is the Bible. I admire who she is and her commitment to her faith.
Both of Alex's older sisters are amazing, faithful and beautiful. I believe I am so lucky to have them in my life. With Karina in town, I eagerly soaked up all our time together. And it was such a treat to have Emily, Karina's daughter, here to meet Eleanor for the first time. Yesterday morning I was sad to see them go. Their presence is uplifting and so the rest of my day was just so-so. They are already so missed.
