 My mother is one of 7 siblings. She was born right in the middle. She has three younger sisters: Carol, Cynthia and Trish. When they're all together you will most likely find them playing a game of Scabble.

Growing up I always looked forward to the holidays when they would travel to my grandparents house in Refugio because they were fun to be around. There was always some kind of game being played and it was fun.

I remember going to my Aunt Cynthia's house in the summer. She lived in San Marcos and we would ride our bikes all over town and then go float down the river.

I spent a lot time with my Aunt Carol because she would let me tag along with them if they were headed to my uncle's parents house in the next town and I would go see them in the summer.

My Aunt Trish has the best stories about us as kids. My family went to Carlsbad Cavern for our family vacation when I was 3 or 4. Well, at 3 or 4 Carlsbad Cavern scared the hell out of me. My Aunt Trish carried me the whole way down and the whole the way back up!

Today, my mom and her sisters have a weekly conference phone call to keep in touch with each other. They get together often and we all meet for an annual family reunion.

These ladies had a direct hand in shaping my childhood and my dreams and their laughter and fun is a memory I will always cherish.

This is my gift. I give it to you
