Cousins. We’re pretty special. We look like each other but don’t live in the same houses, unless our parents saw fit. We remember the fun we had at dance parties, staying up late all night playing monopoly and board games…
We grow up and we move apart, yet as youngsters they felt like siblings sometimes . Today, we are not without around them much, but it doesn’t take much to feel close again.
And when we are around them, amazing how much it feels like another extension of us.
We have weathered storms together, losses and sometimes feel like friends.
Cousins are great people and ‘places’ to be… sometimes .
We shared sleepover, birthday parties, slumber parties with friends and cousins meeting our friends for the first time – and riding bikes, cookouts and races in the street. We even traveled far and near to see each other on regular family holidays.
Thankful for cousins, today.
They are our mirrors of memories.
Call or write that long lost cousin, today and send some love.💕
