There are just some people in life that have a way of wrapping warm fuzzies around you, even from miles and miles away !
This happened the other day when I went to the mailbox and found a package from "Okrahoma."
The return address was from my aunt and uncle, so I immediately started trying to remember what I had probably forgotten and left at their house during my last visit.
After wrestling with the firmly glued flap on the package, the contents literally flew out of the box, all SIX packages at once !
Yes, the contents of that box contained not one, not two, not twenty, but SIXTY yellow Peeps.
My heart just melted like those Peeps do when you stuff a whole one in your mouth and hold it there for several minutes !
THEY remembered MY memory of Peeps as a child !
Have you ever had that urge to laugh and cry at the same time ?
Of course, you have !
That's the urge that came over me.
And then, so many memories came flooding back.
Not just my Peeps memories, but memories of an aunt and uncle who, for so long, have been such an important, inspirational part of my life.
An aunt and uncle, who at some point in my life, turned into a Mom and Dad, for me.
Leenie and Dexie, these photos are posted as "gifts" for you to reminisce and enjoy those memories from years ago.
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH !!!!
