Today was the perfect day to visit the creek that Gabe grew up playing in- we put our feet in the cold water & explored! Even found a lopsided heart-shaped rock❤️The girls laughed and held hands... #creekadventures#cousins#itsagooddaytoexplore
Aunts, Uncle and Cousins! We had several cousins & siblings not able to make it, but thankful for family and time together. Missed getting a pic of Kristen & Kevin, but I didn’t miss one with that sweet Emma Kate! Another first without our Momma, feeling it deeply now that everyone’s gone. 💜 #hulse#cousins#anotheryeartogether#sweetbabycousin

Spent the evening celebrating a graduation and birthday! So good to hang out with family and friends!!!
Yeah, the girl in the pic is me!😅
Was just viewing an old album and wondering how drastically life changes in a couple of decades.
Like ,everything was so different back then.
I was not more than 3 years old, an imaginative and hyperactive toddler. My eyes always had that spark of inventions, my mind always had an innovative idea of destruction ,lol! yeah I was ironic.
As I glanced other pics , I saw my cousins, who were in different levels of their childhood. Like few were a year or two years old carried by their moms, few were naughty preschoolers creating hell of mess, few were irritating babies ,crying in their dad's lap.
Even then life wasn't easy, but those worries were transient and materialistic. A bottle of milk made us satisfied. A barbie set, a princess frock or a remote control car made our hearts fly. Like the battle was never about love, concern, success or peace Today, when I see my cousins, few are struggling in their married lives, few are hunting jobs and are worried about their living, few are struggling for decent grades, few are battling love failures and few are even having kids issues. Like, everyone had become pretty busy in their lives. We hardly meet in any family functions and just greet each other and nothing else. coz, we don't even know, from where to start a conversation, as we ended it long back, so we leave it and just smile on an eye contact, even those smiles won't be real.
The genuineness had lost somewhere in the battlefield of life, we merely brethe now.
lastly, If any of my cousins are viewing this, I just wanna tell you, though life changed, though we grew up, though life isn't quite easy now, though we don't meet as before, but even now our hearts do pray for each other and our memories of childhood would always shine in this darkness of our adulthood. And it's okay, at which stage of life you are, you will surely succeed in your goals! yeah you will!🤗💙 #memories#nostalgia#cousins#20yearsback#itsme#instapoet#poetry#instalove#bhfyp#poet#poetry#writer#poem#love#poetrycommunity#writersofinstagram#poetsofinstagram#poems#writing#quotes#art#words#writerscommunity#wordporn#sad#writersofig#life
