    When I was a little girl, I admired my cousin, Dorothy May so much! I thought she was beautiful, She had The most beautiful nails I had ever seen. She promised me that she would buy me. A mani cure said if I would quit biting my nails. I tried to explain to her that they broke off, that I never bit them. I don't think she believed me, because she never got the manicure💅 set. (I was onlyabout 4 or 5 years old.) I reminded her of her promise years later. (Maybe 25 years) She laughed and said she remembered my complement but not her promise. I'm sorry I live so far away that we haven't seen each other for years . Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time
