I received a beautiful and fun card today. From my cousin Heather in Wales. My heart is full of gratitude and love right now.
I feel so fortunate for my family in Wales, but I have never really been very close with this side of my family, for many reasons. It is a deep regret I have lived with, since we are such a large family and I do have fond memories of being with all my cousins when we were small children.
I guess it takes a certain amount of time and effort to maintain certain bonds, even with family. I am hoping there is another Chance to get to know eachother as adults with our own families…
I know that I always felt like the outsider and the ‘black sheep’ of my family, but perhaps now I can lose that feeling? All I’ve ever wanted us to be close with my family, and to be accepted.
I believe that I have been loved and accepted by my husband’s family now, but it’s not the same as your own is it?
So Heather, Thank You so much for your kind card today. I feel so fortunate and blessed to hear from you. ❤😊❤
