When you get a chance to go watch a family member do something, especially a younger family member, I hope you take the time to go. It means so much to them that you are there, and it is a memory you won't ever forget. Of course, I've had to miss things that my nieces and nephews have done. I've missed many, many things that my nephew who lives near St. Louis has done. But I really try to be at everything my niece and nephew that live around here do, at least everything I can attend. I want them to know how much they mean to me. How much I love them.
You will never regret time invested into the life of a child you love. So get on the phone and see what's going on with your family members. I'll bet they've got a Christmas program coming up very soon!!!
