Right now all I can think about is my cousin and her family. They are in Houston right now. She can not get out and I wish that there was something that I could do for her. Right now all I can do is pray. Family Reunion reminds me of how things used to be with my family we used to get together and hang out in the summertime and everything was easy. Perhaps this was a facade of our youth and what our young minds perceived. I saw her and her daughter briefly in 2001 when I had a layover there on my way somewhere else. That was the first time we’d seen one another in 13 years and I hate to admit that. I had planned to visit her in July but things just didn’t work out right. Now I have regrets. She is my family. The others I am no longer close to. I don’t know what to feel right now about what ifs. I really wish she and my little cousin and her daughter were here right this moment. I am praying for their safety. Hear my heart.
