Yes, this time each year my dad’s side of the family has a BIG family reunion. And when I mean big, it’s BIG!
My dad is the eldest of 12 siblings. And my mom was one of 13 children. Needless to say, I have 47 first cousins!!! But it’s awesome. I love our big ole family and feel blessed to be part of it.
There is lots of fun to be had from our weekend long reunions from swimming in the pool, playing games such as corn hole and just sitting around talking, catching up on life. And of course there is the food! Lots and Lots of it! You will never get hungry at one of our family gatherings. You might even be sent home with a bag full of leftovers!
I know many people who don’t have many family members and even some that have no family at all. It’s hard for me to imagine what that is like because I’ve been so fortunate to grow up with lots of family love from both side of the family.
If you are lucky enough to have family like me, hug each one and tell then you love them. Count yourself blessed. If you know someone that could some “family”, maybe you are just the one to help them.
It’s A Family Reunion!
