We spent the whole day talking about life. I’ve cought up with cousins that I have barely known throughout my life. It’s good to reaquaint with the extended family that I’ve always known I’ve had. It’s good to strengthen the bonds that bind us; the ones once thought to be lost. We have a lot of similarities that developed independent of our influence. The yearning to see the world out there in order to see and experience it all on our own. I’m glad to see them all and can’t wait for more. If you don’t make the effort the bonds will weaken and wilt. It’s through interaction that all this continues to form.
