It's National Aunt and Uncle's Day

I have great respect and huge admiration for my uncles and a couple of aunts. Unfortunately, I don't get to see them very often.  When I do, it's cherished memories that I treasure.

Although they are not Amish, they mostly play the part.  They are very old-fashioned in their ways.

I can't speak highly enough of my three uncles on my mom's side.   They are some of the most talented and caring men I know.  I could gush on and on about how wonderful they are but I'll keep it at bay.  I also have an aunt, but her lifestyle is one that I don't care to partake in.

I didn't know any aunts or uncles from my father's side and I'm not even sure if any are still alive.

In addition to having the greatest uncles in the world, I'm blessed to be an aunt and great-aunt to several kids.  One niece was even named after me.

Are you close to any of your uncles and aunts?  Are you an uncle or aunt yourself?

I love being an aunt to a lot of nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews now! I had quite a few wonderful aunts and uncles myself.
