"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

cousins







{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.


Enjoy your weekend.

  1. Cousins are the best...well second best to siblings perhaps but less annoying than siblings so it kinda evens out. ;)
    Enjoy your weekend, Debbie!

  2. What a sweet picture! It looks like these two are very close friends. :)

    By the way, I LOVE your new blog header, and the quote matches the picture perfectly! Good choice! :)

  3. Sadly my boys don't have any cousins their age. I grew up surrounded by my cousins for the first 20 years of my life but everyone has gone in different directions at this point. Wishing you and your a wonderful weekend. Tammy

  4. I don't have any close cousins and only 5 all together. My husband? Over 100 all together and they live close. It's fun at family reunions.
    I love the way he is looking at her! Have fun this weekend Debbie. I'll find my dancing shoes and you get the music ready! xx

  9. I think not having any cousins is one of the things I missed most growing up. But my friends had plenty and they shared!

  13. I had no siblings but dozens of cousins from my parents' nieces and nephews, so I was always surrounded with kids to play games with, and have sleepovers, etc. This is a beautiful photo. (Love your new header photo by the way). xo,

  16. Such a tender moment - a younger cousin looking up to an older one. Was he pushing her hair aside?

    BTW - the round wooden discs for the checkerboard were just from Michael's (big box art/craft store). But I'm sure there is something online at a better price. I think I used a coupon from the newspaper for them to make them even less expensive. I thought about stamping something on each one or painting a more elaborate picture, but realized how long it would take.

  18. Cousins can be so special, can't they? Although, I must admit I was never wild about any of my cousins. Maybe it was because I had so many siblings!
    I'm hopeful that my grands will continue to love their cousins and see them more often, too!
