Mr. Iknead and I spent a wonderful Saturday with his mom and three cousins, with one cousinly spouse from Oklahoma last weekend. We had such a great visit, and decided that it had been altogether too long since we’d gotten together, with promises to do it again soon, with kids and grandkids in tow next time around. I especially loved hearing Mr. Iknead’s and his cousins’ “remember whens” and “who did what and got away with it” stories. Altogether, there were six cousins, three boys snd three girls, all within a year or two age-wise; it sounded like so much fun! There was so much laughter and a few tears, remembering family members no longer with us, but that’s what life really is, people linked together, some by blood and some by choice, forever. I’m blessed to be included.
