Reunions are a blessing.

The usual ones – on 1st and 2nd days, where the only surprise is how much the nieces & nephews have grown.

The unexpected ones – making a detour to see a new home.

The short ones – where you might have otherwise missed each other by seconds.

The long ones – where only the washing of tiles outsounds the cacophony of voices.

The old ones – where parents (still) talk about cute things you did when you were a kid :-p

The young ones – where even the plates you use to dish out snacks matter.

The easy ones – a cab stops right at your feet the minute you set out of the house.

The difficult ones – a brother has to wade through a flood to get here.

Reunions are a blessing.
