Family gatherings are a wonderful way of bringing each one close enough and bridge whatever patch we all have but sometimes we force the issue it might not be a good of a result. And so I just say whatever will be, will be and whatever comes, come what may.
We seldom have a family gathering. Christmas, Thanksgiving and some special birthday celebration. weddings, funerals and baptism but other than those mention not much. One of our cousins is here with her hubby and Mom and so is my brother. 2008 has and had been a great and not so great years for both sides of the family. There’s the death of Vincent and Mama Dad and endless health crisis that I do not need to mention. But even after all the cryings and departure of our loves we are embrace by visitors from other country and indeed another family gathering is bound to happen.
I can smell it and definitely it is brewing of when it will be. Due to some misunderstandings we might have to make our own family gathering as well for I know someone will be not be able to make it. And whatever his reasons are I understand him and it might not be the right time to see each other.
Another stressful few weeks with the family whom I adore and love. I will most definitely savor, enjoy and ride with the waves during this few weeks.
