The Cousins

Cousins.jpg

I have twenty-three cousins.  Four on my English mum’s side and nineteen on my Irish father’s side.  My dad was the oldest of eight.  That’s a lot of relatives.

My cousins have been a source of laughter and strength through everything.  I am so grateful.

While family has often been a source of tension, it has also been a source of joy.

I read a quote today that said if you want to change the world, look after your family. It is good advice.
