“Remember as far as anyone knows, we’re a nice normal family.” ~ Homer Simpson
I am excited to report that on Saturday, the 28th, I will be meeting family I never knew I had. (Hopefully my sister will be joining me, too.) And it happened quite by accident when I sporadically checked my Spam folder and saw an email awaiting me from Ancestry.com!
The emails, phone calls, text messages, Facebook friending, photos, laughter, (recipes), and love that have been exchange balance the “lost years” felt by some. I think most of us are going with the knowledge that now is the “right time.” Because, truthfully, what else is there? *gentle smile*
Can’t you just imagine the giggles my new family got gathered around the kitchen table and seeing THIS photo of me???
I can’t wait to give each of them a H U G E H U G … and listen to my family’s stories … as well as just take all of them in.
What lovely bounty of the heart …
“The more you love, the more you CAN love — and more intensely you love. Nor is there any limit on how MANY you can love. If a person had time enough, they could love of that majority who are decent and just.” ~ Robert Heinlein
