Three weeks ago today I attended the wedding of a cousin I had not seen for a long time. My dad had been asked to be the photographer and I came along as his assistant. I had looked forward to seeing family members I had not seen in a long time and I was not disappointed. It was great fun to hang out and catch up.

I recognized so many things of myself in these relatives I had not seen in over 10 years: interests in farming and country life, the tendency to brood, love of dogs, craftiness, wearing old jeans, t-shirts and Birkenstock slippers around the house.

It is a wonderful experience to feel so connected. In the past I have often felt a disconnect between relatives and myself and it is great to know that there are people out there with whom I actually have a lot in common.

I feel all warmed up on the inside thinking of that day, it was lovely day and I will treasure those memories.
