Today, I am thankful for my cousins! Growing up we didn't have much of a relationship at all. Living 2 hours and 30 minutes away, our parents never got us together more than once a year. Growing up I wanted nothing more than to have a relationship with them, and it just never happened. Over the past few years my cousins and I reconnected online and over the last year we really started doing things together. It has been amazing. I love them and their kids and really cherished the moments we spent together before I moved out of state. One of my cousin's lives in NM, and I hadn't been able to visit with her as much and waited for the days they'd come out to CA to visit her mom. They would always give me a call so I could come and hang out. Those were special times and I feel so blessed to have been thought of. Even though we're far apart, I do hope and pray that the relationship we have built with each other will continue to grow.
Today, I am thankful for you, Juli, Chrissy, Deme and Benny (and all of your little kiddos as well). Love you guys!
