Ohmygosh, I really love my family.
We just returned from my niece’s wedding in Boston. A large number of us camped together in an apartment and a few hotel rooms and re-bonded the way we do every time we get together. I am certain I have mentioned at least once that my mom made sure that all the cousins and aunts and uncles and more got together every couple of years…family reunion time was sacred. Then the kids got older and reunions were harder to get to…but the seeds had already been sown…our family is a close and ever-expanding circle of people totally in love with each other. Not that we don’t fight…oh, please…we all have our dysfunctional areas, our sore spots and warts. But underneath it all, we are one. Hurt one of us, you hurt us all.
This weekend was another one of those events which was shared via email and Facebook with family who could not be there in person. But I’ll bet if you asked them, they will say that they felt the love all the way from Boston.
Enjoy your new life together, Erin and Matt…and Matt, welcome into the family circle!
