I was looking for some photos today and I ran across this gem my aunt shared with me a few years back. It's my wonderful cousin and my Guelito (grandfather). I don't remember what the occasion was, but the love in both their expressions is evident.
Years later the roles were reversed and the same cousin helped Guelito get ready for a wedding reception. The photos were not intentional, but were a treasure to find. The love was still there many years later. The gentleness and appreciation make my hear swell. How I love these two men!
I am so blessed to have a family that loves and supports one another. I have 30+ first cousins just on this one side. We are all so different and yet, we have a bond that pulls us together. I love them dearly. I am a better woman because of their lives, examples, but especially because of their love.
