Two Awesome Cousins
I love these two very much! They have the biggest hearts ever. They do things for everyone else...not because they want anything back, but because they love to make people happy! Especially their family.
Dawn and Tom are my cousins (well Dawn because she HAS to be...Tom because he married dawn and was forced to be!) and I seriously think they are some of the best people in the world. If I lived closer they would get sick of me, because I would want to see them at least once a week.
I will also say...before I get in trouble with the rest of them. That I love all my cousins and am very close them them all! But Dawn and Tom are pretty special! I didn't have get a chance to have them in my life all along and it was just a bit ago that I got to get Dawn back and have Tom come with her...I consider myself very lucky. We are a very close family and ever since the passing of my uncle in Dec 2010 we all have be a ton closer. Family is forever.
I wanted to write about these two because they gave me a wonderful surprise in the mail today. A FRESH BAKED PECAN PIE....do they know me or what!? This is just a very very small example of the things they have done for me. More examples: a few more pecan pies, making sure to see me when I can come home, being at every CF event possible (including working the garage sales which is a tough job), treating me like gold, and of course treating Laila like she was a true niece!
Dawn and Tom love Laila just as much as she loves them. Another example of their kidness: they found her a big wheel...but not just a big wheel but a PURPLE big wheel. And they drove it up to Ann Arbor to give it to her and then took us to dinner. They spoil us rotten.
So, Dawn and Tom, I want to take this time to let you know how much I love YOU! I wish I had the years back that I didn't get to talk to you as much. I wish I lived closer so I could see you more. You too make me laugh, smile and feel very safe. I know that you have my back and care about me more than most cousins care about each other. Well, I feel the same way. I love you both very much and am glad to have you as mine. I claim you :) and that says a lot right?! Thank you for everything you both do for me, my family, and the fight against CF! Believe it or not I love you both 100x more than I love the pecan pie that I may or not be eating right now!!
