I come from a huge family! I have 27 first cousins from my father side alone. Growing up we always spend holidays and weekends together but as we got older we started to spend less time together. However every now and then once in a blue moon so to speak we do get together and have a lot of fun.
Most of my cousins still live in the Philippines while some have moved to Vancouver, New York and London. When my cousin Kathy came home we all saw this as an opportunity to get together and catch up. I am the eldest of all the cousins so I really wanted to be there.
It was really good to see everyone and see how everyone is doing. This recent night out was the closest we got from being complete and we are all grateful and blessed because of it. After that night I told myself and my cousins that we should do this more often. We should not wait for Christmas or a holiday to get together but try to see each other as much as we can as we are family and this is what family must do.
I just wanted to document this in my blog as a reminder to myself and perhaps to those who read my blog what really matters most.
