This weekend my mom, dad, and two little sisters came to visit me in Waco. Mom and Becca came up Saturday morning and Dad and Claire came up Saturday early evening. I got to show everyone my new house for next year and they all watched me perform in SING. I went shopping Saturday afternoon with Mom and Becca and it was SO much fun! I really realized this weekend how much I miss my family and how blessed I am to have them in my life. It is easy to forget how much they mean to me when I get all tangled up in my own life and I just don't live at home anymore. I actually almost cried today when I said goodbye to them because I did not want them to go. It is so weird; when I still lived at home I never thought that God would bring us to this point. They drove me crazy when I was in high school. I guess that is all of us maturing a little. I'm so proud to be the daughter of John and Julie Martisek and the oldest sister to Emily, Claire and Becca Martisek. I cannot wait until Spring Break so that I can hang out with them more!! I also look into the future and see all of us girls married with kids and carrying on the tradition of love that my family has grown. I'm so proud of my family, our strength, and our love for one another. Thank you God for the blessing that my family is to me and I just pray that we will continue to make You the center of our lives. Amen.
