This first picture was taken in the early 1990s. I don’t remember what year. I love it of both of us.
Since this was taken, we have posed for many pictures, including our recent visit. We have also laughed a lot, cried a little, and had so many fun times together.
Pam is one of my best friends. And, I love that we are family. No matter how long it’s been since we have seen each other, we pick up right away and chat like no time has passed. The friendship we have is rare and I cherish it.
This second picture is (from left) of me, Pam, my sister Cindy, and my sister-in-law Beckie. And the third was taken on that same day while shopping and walking on the boardwalk of Beckie, Pam, and me. These were taken in 2006. Fun times with my girls!
Shared stories, laughter, togetherness, time at the beach or pool, and talking over a glass of wine are some of the many things we enjoy doing together.
Now that we are both married and have families, our circle has grown. There are more people to have fun with and to love. Our families are so important to both of us and I just love that!
A verse in scripture (Proverbs 17:17) says that a friend loves at all times. And Elbert Hubbard said, ““A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.” I am blessed to have such a friend who is also my cousin.
I wonder when I will get to see my dear cousin again? I do hope that it’s soon!
