Today, I am thankful for the rest of my family ~ my parents, my sister, my aunts & uncles, cousins, and all the extended folks!
I know I am super blessed that I had all 4 of my grandparents many years longer than most. I lost my first gramma in December of 01, almost 10 years ago. My granpa passed in 09, then I lost my Meme this past May. I am thankful for my Pepaw, who is a blessing in my & my kiddos life! Not only was I blessed with grandparents for so long, but my kiddos got to know 3 of their 4 great grandparents!
My family has always been close. I have 4 cousins that are all within a couple of years age range from me and we have always been close. Life has changed us and we are all at different places right now, but I know they are there for me. Same for my aunts and uncles, great aunts & great uncles. My kiddos have been blessed with not only great aunts & uncles, but great-greats that they have been able to get to know.
