Family Bonding

Teary eyed and all. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ฉListen…when I say the quality time spent with my cousin Tesha was everything!! The gifts of hospitality is my heartbeat. To be a recipient of this gift in its FULLNESS, truly ministered to my heart on levels only GOD knew it would. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›

I remember when I first met my BLOOD cousin โ€œnot a play cousinโ€ lol at age 15. She had just turned 16 & had just started driving. Our family reunion was on her bday. Her birthday cake was her name spelled out in BIG letters T-E-S-H-A๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜ฏ. Her BIG smile & contagious laughter. Her A-Symmetrical hair cut was๐Ÿ”ฅ, with a LONG shag to match! Lol remember thinking and feeling โ€œwow, I want to know her!โ€ โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฃ Hours later, all the teens were sent to the cityโ€™s arcade and we hit it OFF and never looked back! From that time fwd- all love, nuthin but love, and cousinnnn, hi cousinnn, I love you cousinnnn, Hey cousinnnn, this my cousinnnn, donโ€™t mess with my cousinnnnn โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ She stood in my wedding. Was an example of good mother to me when I had my first child. Just all around dear to my heart. ๐Ÿ˜ญโ˜บ๏ธ

This weekend, weโ€™ve spent more time ALONE than I believe we have in over 20 years & it was everything. Laughter, love and more laughter! Iโ€™m forever grateful for this time spent with her and for the LOVE she poured out to me.

I just wanted to openly thank her for being cousin angel over the weekend. ๐Ÿ˜‡ I love you cousinnnnn๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ #thanks #grateful #blessing #family #friendship #fun #touched #5heartbeats #lifestyleblogger
