Family, originally uploaded by Itinerant.

For the only children out there, know that being one of many isnt all it's cracked up to be.

Sometimes, if they werent blood you wouldnt want to know them. But because theyre blood, youre still joined even if you dont want to be.

As adults, we havent been all together except twice - once for a thanksgiving that my ma made sure happened and for ma's funeral. Literally twice in 20 years.

However, as they say - a funeral pulls family together, and any rancor was largely forgotten, and our true feelings were expressed.

"Love you."

Just because we may not always like each other doesnt mean we dont love each other, strongly.

That's family for you.
