Tears Of A Ukulele

Family is everything. I could easily end this post with that.

Because when you boil it down, your family loves and supports you.
And they go out of their way to make your life better. Mostly.

Without my family, I honestly don’t know what I’d do.

They make life easier, happier, safer, greater.

I love you my family.

This weekend my sister-in-law kindly lent us her family. While my handy bro renovated all three of my bathrooms (SO gorgeous… just wait until you see the after photos!) my niece and nephew hung out with us. It was a glorious cousin palooza.

Avery is obsessed with her older cousins—not at all surprising considering they teach her so much and make her feel like the most important, most loved kid.

When Sunday came and the big kids were packing up to leave, she just couldn’t bear it. So without a word, she slipped upstairs to the music room to express her emotions. With giant tears and her pink ukulele, she composed this song.

I snuck upstairs to record her—not to mock her very real pain, but because it was so ridiculously cute, creative, and heartfelt. I simultaneously snort laughed and choked back tears.

You can watch her pitifully beautiful ballad below.
