When no matter what you’re doing, it’s fun, like a backyard full of bubbles.

Or stuffing yourself into a Can Jam.  Literally Jamming the Can.

Being a cousin means you have instant friends that you don’t have to explain your parents to.

It is being snuggled and loved, sometimes even a little too much, but then maybe there is no such thing as that.

How would we know that riding huge roller coasters is FUN, and that maybe we aren’t afraid of heights or going fast after all?

Whether we’re in a stage of learning or teaching, or sometimes both at the same time, the best mentors are the ones who love you and will never let go.

Because no matter how big and wide the world feels sometimes, with family, we are never in it alone.
