On Friday at noon I shut down my computer and turned off all my twitter updates on my phone. I thought that since I was visiting with family that it would be a good time to go unplugged. I have to say that it was weird to not look at my phone for twitter updates but I didn’t feel like I missed out on much either.

If you watch the show Parenthood and at the end how they all get together, that is how I remember my family growing up. I remember hanging out with my cousins for all types of events. My mom’s brother and sisters were over at each others’ houses helping each other out when needed. I also spent a lot of time at my grandparents house.  Now my family is spread out across several states but when we all get together we don’t miss a beat.

I hope that my children can have this sort of relationship with our family. I know that they enjoy when they get together with their cousins. I am glad that we meet twice a month on Thursday nights to have dinner together as a family. I am glad that they will be able to see their cousins all the time.

We are so blessed to have the family relationship that we do have. I don’t know too many people who are close to both their family and their in laws.

What do you think is special about your family?
