On my mom's side, I have dozens of cousins.
(Dozens of Cousins would be a cool name for a rock band)
There was a time when we all fit in the same room, on
Christmas afternoon, at the feet of our grandparents.
Grandma and Grandpa have been gone for many years now, and we are scattered to the winds, raising our own families, living our own lives.
We got together today, to smile and laugh, and remember how lucky we are to be a family.
Plus, they don't reject me for my weird habits...
