Day 27 – A picture of yourself and a family member.
I haven’t said much about these folks, but they are from my earliest memories, all sewn together as one…
This is in my backyard on Harvey and I was abbbbout….3, maybe 4…but I think 3. ( I was SO cute…pfftp!)
These three were my first friends (well, with the exception of Johnny Buss that I followed around EVERYWHERE!) but it was always us…
They are my first cousins on my dad’s side…and before long, there was a Cindy and much later a Cheryl. So I have lots of family that sadly, I miss more than I can admit, because it’s foolishly been way too long with most of them being so close. *sigh*
Dean, seriously, the only boy cousin I have…has features and looks of his Uncle Sam. And it hurts my heart and makes me love him more.
Gayla, the one chick I wanted to be like, ALL the time. And my goodness, how she loved playing with me. I couldn’t wait to see Gayla.
Debra…this chick is cool. Always was…even as a young child, I remember thinking…”I will never be Debra.” She is like Joan Jett cool…and TINY!!! holy cow! she’s so cute!
I miss my extended family. My Aunt Dovie, the second cousins I have never met…the cousins I never see.
Methinks a family reunion should be planned. If for no other reason that I can play with my cousins again!
For all of you…my debradeangayla…my Cindy and yes, even Cheryl….you have a part of my heart…the best part of my past, of my dad, your uncle, our grandmother lives within each of us…
I miss you and love you very much!
