My cousins and I are extremely close. I would consider them to be my brothers and sisters. Having a close relationship with your family is very beneficial in life. I know that my cousins would be there for me through anything, without judgment, and they will always have my back. I am so thankful to have them in my family as well as being my best friends.
I honestly feel bad for families who aren't close like ours, because it is such an amazing feeling. I have a lot of family members, I have very many cousins. We all vary in ages ranging from teen's to thirties, and now some of them have their own babies. My family has a tradition of being together every single Christmas, and this last one was a big realization for all of us. As we've gotten older, our families relationships have gotten stronger.
All of us cousins realized that as we get older, our aunts, uncles, and grandparents do as well. We made a promise to each other that we would continue our family tradition of getting together in order to keep our close bonds and for our own kids one day. I can't even put into words how amazing that feeling is.
Knowing that no matter what happens in life, I will have my cousins there for me. We talk to each other every single day and we all love each other unconditionally. As our family continues to grow, I am also very thankful for each addition that has been added to our family. We truly have it made.
The saying of never giving up on family is so beyond true because if we gave up, we wouldn't have what we have now. I know that I will always need my cousins and I hope they feel the same about me and the rest of us. Thank you guys, for constantly being there for me, that includes girlfriends, wives, husbands etc.
