My lil’ stroll down memory lane

In taking a lil’ stroll down memory lane, I  just want to share with you that recently I got to spend some time with extended family members. Boy, was it wonderful! Just being with my cousins, aunties and uncles brought back floods of Imagememories.  When we were all young we had no idea that the greatest gift that our Nana could give us was to insist that all of her family spend the major holidays together. a few times it seemed like an imposition, especially as we all started growing, spreading our wings and trying to become the people we wanted to be. However, now looking back, I see that my grandmother was a very wise woman. Although we weren’t aware of it at the time, she was actually giving us a foundation, to which we could return at any time. I have aunties who yet do that to this day. We lost one such beautiful shining light, but she did not leave us without admonishing us to keep the tradition of getting together alive. Therefore, despite all that keeps me busy, I have re-committed myself to the legacy of love that we have been left.  I think one of my cousins said it best in a cute little post. It read, and I’m paraphrasing, cousins are the first friends we have in life. In my book, sometimes they are the BEST friends we can have in life.

So there you have it, my lil’ stroll down memory lane.

Well, gotta run my darlings, but live and love!
