It’s family reunion season!
My family and I will be traveling to Tennessee to visit my dad’s side of the family. It’s family reunion season! We don’t usually go out of our way to see anyone, but family is different. These people all live within a close proximity to each other and even though we live so far away they still treat us like one of their own. I’m always so nervous to go see them because I’m so much younger than everyone on that side of the family, but I always have to remember something: that doesn’t really matter.
All my family wants and all anyone really wants is to know there is someone who cares about them. It means the world to my family from the south and to my immediate family that we all get together because it really shows how much we care about each other. Family might not be a bond that we all understand, but it’s a bond none-the-less. I might not have much to say about the topic because I’m not around my family enough, but I’m excited to learn from them and to hear how they’re doing.
I’ve spent my life trying to be better than the rest of my family, but who is better than who? There is no “better” – only you. I love my family and I can’t want to see them. I just hope they don’t make fun of my accent too much (Northern’s have the accident down there).
Tennessee, here we come!
