*At Roosters with Meredith & Lisa
When I step back and look at your life, I am amazed at the amount of GREAT WOMEN surrounding you already. Not even a year old and you have so many strong, beautiful ladies to look up to and lean on. These women love you like their own. It makes me feel so PROUD and secure about your future. I know that no matter what happens to me, there will be so many women ready and willing to help you through this crazy, beautiful life.
Nana will always have your back. She will FIGHT for you. She will give you confidence and self-assurance. She will hunt down anyone that ever hurts you - Nana is packing heat. And Nana loves to shop!
Grammy will always be up for lunch or pedicures or just about anything. She will always be a listening ear and will find a way to make you feel better about anything that may be troubling you.
Aunt Lauren will teach you many things. She is brilliant. Take her up on book and music recommendations. She will be another great listener for you…she will help you find answers when things are unclear and she will always make you laugh.
Aunt Katie will help you with boys. She will teach you how to bake yummy cakes and desserts. Lean on her when you have questions about hair & makeup or are confused about becoming a real-deal “woman.”
Great Aunt Diane is a gentle spirit. She is a place of calm when things seem out of control. She’s also a great cook!! If you ever need some perspective or peace of mind, stop by for a visit.
“Aunt” Leanna will crack you up. She will always have something new and funny to show you. She will ALWAYS be there for you…anytime…no matter what is going on. She has a gentle spirit, but a strong will.
Great Aunt KiKi (Kip) is always up for a good time. Call her when you need some girl time. Aunt KiKi is business-savvy and determined. She can tell you all about antiques, designer clothing, and how to tell real gold from fake.
Auntie Meredith will teach you awesome dance moves. She will show you how to live your life - how to LIVE in the moment and use each day to it’s fullest potential. Mer Mer will also sit around, watch movies, eat pizza, and drink strawberry wine with you.
Auntie Lisa will be your creative outlet. She will teach you about true friendship. She will laugh at your jokes and always look out for your best interests. Lisa will always be ready for a party.
…and there are so many others, Tinsley. So many honorary “aunts” who will be present for many of your big life events. You don’t know it yet, but BOY you are blessed!! It’s taken me many years to see these blessings in my own life…I hope you can take hold of these relationships and cherish them.
“When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It’s a whole different way of thinking.”
