In Response to RE: Family Reunions by rmcginnis
I'll have to admit that I was smiling a lot as I wrote about this memory. I hadn't thought about that experience for a very long time. I haven't seen any of those people since that time and now I wish I had listened to the older people more. I know so little about my father's family, even his brothers and sisters. I actually don't know the reason for that.
One thing that really made me smile was thinking of myself as that 13-year old and my mother telling me that some day I would have a 13-year old daughter, which was her version of Karma. I didn't have children of my own but I did have a step-daughter that I was convinced took a pill or read a book on her 13th birthday on how to become an obnoxious teenager.
