I thought that I would start my blogging challenge with a topic that is very dear to me: cousins.
I have many cousins (one side of my family is Catholic) and we have always been very close.
Unfortunately there was a big case of family betrayal last year that resulted in a portion of my family being disowned, many of them cousins. i won't go into any more details than that, other than to say that it still breaks my heart, but apparently the universe decided that the last twelve months of my life needed to resemble a soap opera as much as possible. Well played, Universe.
Anyway, I still have so many cousins in town, and I love them all very much. We are all around the same age, and are more like best friends than cousins.
Last night we went to Paint-A-Piece and each designed a plate. Mine is going to be a christmas cookie plate. :-)
I appreciate all that they are, and all that they do. I can't imagine having gone through the last few months without the support of my amazing cousins. I may have lost a mom, but they lost a wonderful aunt.
I'm so lucky to have these guys.
