On Saturday we gathered for food and a wonderful time of ‘catch-up’, good food and lively conversations. Most of my cousins I hadn’t seen since I was in my teens. It was amazing to see how we’d aged. I had a picture in my mind of each and every one of my cousins who attended – all as teens.As children we often visited Aunt Mary (dad’s sister) and Uncle Emil (mom’s brother) on Sundays. Aunt Mary was a fantastic cook. We were double cousins – but the best part was they had a child to match every one of me and my siblings. We always had playmates and things to do when we visited back and forth. It was so enjoyable to reunite with them.
The food served was reminiscent of the old day when families gathered on Sundays to enjoy our day of rest.
