Family is not an important thing. It's everything. – Michael J. Fox
We’re a small family. I’ve got a brother, a sister, two in-laws and six nieces and nephews. If a family reunion occurs in the future, ours will fit in a one long table by the side instead of renting the whole restaurant like other family reunions do.
There’s always a disadvantage when you seldom see your family. You’re always surprised at how the children have grown. I once wanted to buy a Barbie doll for my niece only to be reminded by my wife that she’s already in high school and doesn’t play with dolls anymore. In my mind the memory of them gathering around me while I distribute chocolates and other goodies is still fresh. It seems like only yesterday when they’re all cute and cuddly:
When I saw the "group" picture of my eldest nephew's wedding, I was a little bit homesick.
Everyone was there except me and my own family. Looking at it, I realized how time flew fast.
I miss you all!
