When I was a child I had a hard time making friends because I was so shy but the people in my family made up for it by being my friends.
I’m talking about my cousins, one cousin in particular I was really close with. We did everything together. She was my best friend.
Then life happened and we grew up and grew apart. We still consider each other best friends and on occasion tell people we’re sisters.
She was always there for me during my darkest hours and I love her for that. She was the first one to help me when my husband was in jail.
We spent every summer together at Clark Hill Lake. That’s a lake that borders Georgia and South Carolina where my dad grew up. We had so much fun at that lake and I miss it but at least we have the memories.
We may not get together like we used to but we still love each other.
Do you have a cousin that you’re particularly close with? Let me know in the comments and Happy Cousins Day!
