I kept struggling with the fact that I wanted to have this big close family . Never even considering that I had this part of my family that I didn’t have connections with for some more than 15 years . Well this past weekend I reconnected with my family . They do all the things together as a family that I would only dream about. Sure they are a bit dysfunctional . That is the beauty of it . We are normal amongst each other . I am so very grateful to have them back in my life. I am looking forward to creating many memories with them .
