November 3rd is my cousin, Ariel's birthday. I hope she will have a fabulous day.
She is on the left in this picture of us and our cousin, Amy. Ariel and I met only days before this picture was taken. Her mom, my Aunt Cathy (my dad's youngest sister) died of an aneurysm when Ariel was a baby and I was eight years old.
Our families lost touch. Ariel and I didn't know each other while we were growing up. However, she took the initiative to seek out her mom's side of the family a few years ago. I'm so thankful that she did.
She is a remarkable person. Her adventurous spirit and kind heart have brightened my life.
Hey, Lady. You are so brave and capable.
Here's wishing you a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness.
