Memories with cousins

Hold tight to the sound of the music of living
happy songs from the laughter of children at play
Hold my hand as we run through the sweet fragrant meadows
Making memories of what was today.
We have this moment to hold in our hands and to touch
As it slips through our fingers like sand
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come
But we have this moment today.
Tiny voice that I hear is my little girl calling
For mommy to hear just what she has to say
And my little son running there on the hillside
May never be quite like today.
Tender words, gentle touch and a good cup of coffee
And someone who loves me and wants me to stay
Hold them near while they're here and don't wait for tomorrow
To look back and wish for today.
We have this moment to hold in our hands and to touch
As it slips through our fingers like sand
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come
But we have this moment today.
To each of our dear cousins, aunts, uncles, & our grandparents~we love you and treasure all those memories we make together every year!

  5. Hello,
    I was wondering where you and your cousins got your swimming suits? It's so hard to find modest/cute ones!
    Thanks,
    Rebekah

  6. Hi Rebekah!
    I had to laugh when I saw your question....because we get our swimwear from all over! :) Two of my cousins got dresses from Kohl's that were made of that "swimsuit" fabric but weren't made to be worn as swimsuits! My aunt made matching leggings for them to wear. Then another cousin got hers from Lands'End....and some of us got burmuda shorts from different stores...and stretchy tank tops from Walmart (we just wore regular swimsuits under them) We have alot of fun exchanging ideas for stylish modest suits when we get together. :) Another place we have ordered from before is Swim Modest.
