My cousin Kerrie was visiting with my grandma Mimi last week and saw a picture on her nightstand that she had never seen before. She took a pic with her phone and texted it to me right then. I literally started crying because I have never seen this picture before and I don't have a single one of the two of us together from when I was a child. My mom had a small suitcase that held all my special moments and certificates like baptism, first communion, baby pics, etc. 20 years ago, it burned in a fire so I have nothing.
I know I've mentioned numerous times that my parents were teen parents- Dad was 18 and mom was 17 when I was born. I just love this picture. Also in the picture is a black and white dog and her name was Twinkie. My mom said she was the greatest dog and Twinkie actually saved my life. I had her the Twinkie story many times. I was a small toddler just learning to walk and it was one of those split seconds that my parents turned their heads and I was walking into the street and Twinkie jumped behind me and grabbed my diaper with her mouth and pulled me backwards and at that time a car was passing the street. Twinkie was a hero.
I couldn't be very old in this picture.
We are getting rain here in Dallas and its glorious!!! I love rain and I love that its cooling down the temps . Now if we can pray for the rain to move west and quench the horrible fires going on .
I am heading to east Texas tomorrow to spend the day with my other grandmother Nanny. She's been in and out of the hospital and I need to hug her neck. She is my favorite grandma and she means the world to me. She just turned 91 last month. Mimi is 90 . Lots of longevity in the bloodline.
Have a great weekend!!
