Here I am!

Okay so here I am creating my first blog, I've been thinking about it for awhile now and after talking to my Grandma Duvall tonight I just couldn't help myself. My grandma called to tell me a story that she had found in her journal and I just had to record it before I forgot. She has a journal entry about me and my cousin Brad. Brad and I are about the same age. Me being born January 24 and him February 14th? I think or right around there somewhere lol. All through my young childhood days we grew up on the same block, went to the same church, the same preschool and we were even in the same classes all through elementary school. Getting older my childhood memories have begun to fade and I didn't remember the friendship that we had shared until my Grandma read me the journal entry. Keep in mind I am completely paraphrasing what she told me but here it goes...
My Aunt Marlene had told her this story... Bradley didn't want to go to nursery at church one Sunday and after seeing my mom in the hallway and finding out that I was in nursery she decided to see if she could get him to go again because we were such good friends. When she got back to the nursery she found me just a crying! When Bradley saw me crying he came up to me and hugged me, I guess I hugged him right back with a look on my face like I had just found my bestest friend in the whole wide world! We were soon playing not even caring where our mothers were.... Isn't it funny how we forget the little stories in our lives??? I told my grandma that I would need a copy of the story because I am sure that I haven't done it justice. I guess I am just in a nostalgic mood today. I've been reading my cousin Tracy's blog and my Aunt Jackie's girls all have blogs that I've been reading too. It's such a good way to keep in touch with everybody! I may not comment and such but I want everybody to know that I read each and every post. I hope that I can make this writing a habit, but for those of you who know me...know not to count on that LOL!
