Dedicated to Lily
as a special dedication...
I know many of us who have been on dA a while, have come to feel like this is a place where we have found family, or another family. For a lot of us, it is a special community in that way.
I know that I consider many of my female friends from here "sisters" and have referred to them as such, or refer to them this way regularly. I have a few "brothers", too,
and even have a "dA mom"...
In my life in general, I do not have a big family at all, as far as biological. Not only that, we are spread far and wide, in physical distance, and do not usually communicate much with technology, or haven't, with any regularity. My mom and I do the most.
A couple of us have tried harder in recent times, which of course, is very nice.
Also, due to other personal issues, I view family and family concepts very differently.
I don't feel like biology is what always makes family. I think love is the factor that outweighs everything and anything else.
If I was to begin to list all of my "dA family" I would be here a long time and surely leave someone out by accident.
I just chose Lily for now, who has felt like a younger sister to me here on dA, for a long time,
and Denyse, who is my dA Mom, who truly is AWESOME!
I thank them, for their care and concern and for checking on me, when they haven't "seen me" in a little while on dA, and things like that.
It's very sweet of them.
Photographed above is one of my two biological nieces, BONNIE!
This photo was taken, when I was on my trip in Tucson, Arizona, in April, and I had taken the girls, both of my biological nieces, horseback riding at an educational horse ranch, for my older niece's (Maria's) birthday. Maria turned ten, then, and Bonnie will be 8 soon, one week after my birthday- a fellow Scorpio.
Love to ALL of my family... everywhere!

It's important to know this NOW, as I may NOT be able to do individual thank-you's for 's, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding.
And, if you just came to view, I appreciate that, too.
