KINSHIP: relationship by nature, qualities, etc.; affinity
Can it really have been 9 years since I have been in the same room with all of these women? It's not possible. We've shared elementary school, high school graduation, BIG adventures, some marriages ;) and the birth of babies. They are KIN to me.
Our time together is as easy as if there had never been one lost weekend since we were together. We laugh, we cry (only because we laugh so hard!!!), we reminisce (and then LAUGH) and connect on such a deep level it's as if we have always been in the same town and have each other over for dinner every Tuesday. Oh, if only it were true
For this moment, for this weekend I will take whatever I can get. I love being with family.
