I spent most of the day yesterday at a family reunion. Us usual, I had a blast because I pretty much adore everyone in my fam. However, yesterday I discovered a new person to adore. It seems that after my uncle's divorce, he got around a bit and had several kids with several different women.
We only just found out that we have these other cousins - one is off fighting in Iraq. I hope to meet him someday soon. One has moved out of state and one came to the reunion yesterday. We had a great time and it turns out that her passions are reading and writing, too! Who knew?!
We talked about our favorite books and our least favorite books and what we were currently working on. We talked about our grandparents who, unfortunately, she never got a chance to meet. I wish we'd found out about her (and the other cousins) sooner - our grandparents would have loved her. I'm thrilled that our family is expanding again and that I got a chance to meet this wonderful woman.
