I haven't always been one to look for the good things that happen during a hard part of life. Perhaps I do now because of age and maturity or my faith.
While I am sad that I missed summer altogether with traveling back and forth to help daddy after his hip surgery and stroke, I am happy that I reconnected with my cousin, Teresa. In more years than I care to think about we've only seen each other at family funerals.
My Mama and her Daddy are siblings and both have passed away. While their absence leaves us with empty spots in our family I really hope we can share our lives in the days ahead. I know Mama and Uncle Jimmy would like that.
Thank you, cuz, for being a blessing to me.
