Monday's Muse on Tuesday... Desiree'


Me and my Cousins, Dez has dark hair on the right.

My Muse is my Cousin Desiree'. We call her Dez. She is one of the most awesome people you will ever meet!! I am so fortunate to have her in my life... and as a cousin...psssh it could get no betta!! She is so down to earth and so sweet. She has a great head on her shoulders and is practical without being demeaning. She gives great advice without belittling. I've never heard her say she "hates" anyone. I think the worst was an inaudible sigh... the kind where your not sure if you've heard anything wrong. Actually her sisters are the same. Erica (sitting on the left with the blond curls) and Coralie... they were a true pleasure to play with. Even in her late teens when I'd try to coerce Dez to the Dark Side.. she would wake up like everyday was a new one and continue to focus on being the best she could be. 

She is an Awesome Mother.

She is raising her girls to be just as Awesome! Her Children are so polite and so sweet! I just love these girls! The thing I like about Dez is she never lets the B.S. get to her. She will probably laugh at that. But seriously, it's true. She has that Cry for a second and then move the hell on attitude. When she abruptly became a single parent (in not so nice of a way), she dusted her self off and eased into the role that I, after years, am still trying to figure out! 

Dez, Dezi, Desiree' I luv you and am proud you are my Cousin and one of my Bestest Friends!

Jane (aka Betty to me)- What a wonderful tribute to Des (Dez). What an honor! Just love that photo. I took Gavin to see Spirit of Uganda at the Granada theater in SB this past Friday night (2/5) and thought of you. It was the most moving, uplifting, inpiring and heartwarming peformance! The peformers were all breathtakingly beautiful! It is no surprise that you were born there.
