It's hard not to sound cliche' when I write or speak about my family, but I must say I really do love them. Our lives are intertwined in a strange and poignant way. We all share the same grandparents, great grand parents, great uncles and aunts. We all share the same line as the two that came over on a boat from a far away land over 100 years ago, trying to create a better life. Don't we all strive to create a better life?
It's been a week since I've seen my grandma and some of my family. These quick occasions sustain me.
It's good to reflect. Here's Joe and Lisa, cousins by my Uncle Mike.
