So nice to have my Mom, Dad and Brother and his family around for a while. Such a rare thing for me and so nice. You see we have been scattered all over the country for a very long time. The cousins are playing great together and we are all able to get to know each other a little bit more. Perhaps this is also the beginning of something different.... A new time in our lives. This is a good thing and a long time coming. It is the 'family' that I have wanted and longed for, for longer than I can remember. Yay.
