Personal History Question 18 is, “Write about your aunts.”
I have one aunt on my mom’s side, my Aunty N. On my Dad’s side there is my Aunt S and my Aunt C.
I had a lot of great aunts, and even a couple of faunties. (fake aunties lol. No relation, but close friends of the my parents, and I always referred to them as aunty. I had a couple Nana’s too. <3 )
My Aunty N is warm and kind. She carries herself well, and is always ‘put together’ … her hair is always nice, she dresses well, she always kept a nice home. She always smells real nice, too. She has a great laugh and she snorts when she finds something really funny. We used to have Thanksgiving and Christmas Eves at her and my uncles house and those are some of my best memories. I am grateful to have her in my life.
My Aunt S ..she had a big heart. BIG. She loved doing for others. She loved to cook. She loved her kids (too much, in my opinion.. ). She had the BEST laugh. I smile now remembering it! She loved my Dad. She took care of my Nan in her final days. I have lots of memories of her that involve music and laughter. She LOVED Elvis (like.. obsessively lol) She gave great hugs. She was very affectionate. I miss her. I miss the way her eyes would crinkle up when she would smile… and I miss that laugh so very much. Oh, and the way she said, “I love yah!” whenever we would be ending a call, or leaving each others presence.
My Aunt C. She looks so much like my Nan. I sadly do not have a relationship with her. And that is on me. She is very close to the rest of my family, and I am not. So, I choose to stay distant. I HATE it. I hate it so much. But I just do not need the drama of being involved with them. My early childhood memories of her and my uncle are warm, and kind, and filled with love. Even going years without seeing them, when I WOULD see them, it was as if no time at all had passed. I would love to hug her and tell her that I love her. It makes me anger towards the rest of my family flare, but I have to remember, that this was my choice, even though it was a difficult one.
I have two aunts by marriage, my Aunty L and my Aunty B. My Aunty L is a Native American. She is so pretty, so soft spoken. I have never had the chance to talk to her about life on a reservation, but I would really like to… She is very kind and very warm. My Aunty B.. oh I loved her. I can still hear her voice. She was a heavy smoker and had “that voice” … I loved her laugh. I love how she loved others. Her and my uncle seemed such opposites, I loved their dynamic. She gave great hugs and you never escaped a smooch 🙂 I miss her very much.
My Gram divorced my Grandpa. She remarried and had two more kids, both girls. My Aunty BJ, and my Aunty G. I have to say, I do not know my Aunty G much at all. She had moved away, had two kids,…I only ever saw her at special occasions. She is always loving and such. My Aunty BJ I have been around each other, off and on, all my life. Love her to bits. She also has the BEST laugh. She has a great sense of humor and we laugh a lot. She lives in FL and so I do not see her much, but I miss her.. she was a good source of calm in the aftermath of losing my dad..
And so that is it.. I have too many faunties to mention.. .I would be here all day LOL
