Brought to you by the letter C

C is for Cousins!

According to Wikipedia,  cousin is a relative with whom a person shares one or more common ancestors. 

My sweet aunt Mary passed away this Sunday, and I'm distraught.  She was my dad's last remaining living sibling.  This opens up a whole new can of sadness for me.

However, there is some good that comes out of it.  I get to see my COUSINS.  They live a whole state away, and we don't see each other as often as we would like.  So, I took a day and a half off work, and my dear husband drove me to Arkansas so that I could be there for them.  Here are some scenes from when I last say my cousins in 2005.


I love them so much!

I'm so sorry for your loss!! Wishing you all the strength you need to come to terms with this loss.

You've chosen a wonderful word and in these settings also very appropriate.

So sad. It also tends to be sad occasions when all my cousins meet up as they are scattered all over the world, a bitter/sweet occasion.

I have ZERO first cousins. My parents were only children.
Sorry for your loss.

ROG, ABCW
