Since I'm an only child and my aunt's two girls are the same ages as my children, they've always called me Aunt Gail, even though we're first cousins. I love that. After moving back to Baton Rouge two years ago, I have had the opportunity to get closer to my family, my "adopted" nieces especially. All three of us suffer from bouts of depression from time to time, so if I'm not lifting them up, they're lifting me up. It's pretty wonderful. Here are the flowers from my youngest niece/cousin. She surprised me with them last week, filling my heart with joy and love. Remind me sometime me to tell you the story about why Double D refuses to buy me flowers and hasn't since 2/14/1991...another post for another day. I absolutely love getting fresh flowers! Thank you, Chris, for being the special girl you are. And for loving me.
