Gods I love my family.

Good Day to you all.

As I said last night, yesterday I went to the annual family gathering that we've held on the first Sunday following my Grandmother's birthday since she passed away a couple of years ago.

It's an important event for us because it ensures that the whole clan sees each other as often as we did when the old trooper was alive, and not just on St. David's Day, Calan Mai, Christmas and milestone birthdays.

The thing that struck me yesterday as I was sitting surrounded by my family though, was how much they all mean to me. We love each other unconditionally. We don't care about any of the insignificant things, all we care about is that we are bonded by ties of flesh and blood. We're a fun bunch, we don't hold much stock in the whole unnecessary bickering thing, and we always hold rank. And I dunno, there's just something very calming about being surrounded by that type of environment. You don't have to pretend to feel happy just because people expect you to, and you dont have to please anyone with your actions. You just have to be.

I'm not saying that my friends don't make me feel happy and cumfortable, because they do. It's just... I don't know. I guess its just good to remember all the good things you have in your life, and how much harder it would be if you didn't. I don't know how the hell I would get through things sometimes if I didn't have the support of my family.

But anyway, I'm rambling. So yes.
