I cannot believe that I have gone this whole month and have not recognized the gratitude that I have for my fantastic sister, Marti (and by extension her husband Graham). Marti was my first friend and my best friend and will remain so forever. She is a wonderful mother to Kathleen and Colin:
|Kathleen, who, sadly decided to go to the University of Texas in Austin |
and is now a Longhorn. She is an amazing kid with an old soul.
|Colin, in September celebrating his 15 birthday. Sitting next to him is his cousin, Luke.|
Colin has been a charmer since the day he was born.
In the meantime, I'm very grateful to have such a wonderful sister who has given our family two great additions as well as brought into our fold her husband, Graham and via Graham a whole extension of his parents, sister, brother-in-law, and their kids. When Marti and Graham got married, we increased our family not by just one but by 6 and then some.
Oh, and one last thing, totally unrelated to my gratitude for my sister.....
There was a time many, many moons ago when Kathleen wore a Texas A&M shirt!!
