No, I’m not giving up Social Media for Lent. My 2013 Lenten discipline is to give thanks to God for those who have helped me to grow into who God intends for me to be and become. See all of my 2013 Lenten Thanks here.
I think I have 20+ “real” cousins plus a bunch of other “village” cousins, but the closest in age are my two cousins on my Chow side, Tiffini and Trina. Each about a year apart, we spent many a day together just being kids. From catching frogs at auntie’s house, to finding ourselves independently involved in the same activity to family meals sitting at the “kids” table, I deeply cherish time spent with my two cousins. We have grown to be friends as adults, we continue to rejoice in one another’s adventures and I am grateful for their presence in my life and the life of my girls.
Today I give thanks for my cousins: Tiffini and Trina.
