Talked to a cousin I haven't talked to in about 17 years.

Talked to my cousin Crystal. I haven't seen her in 17 years, there was a time, when her and, her sister Jamie practically lived with us, they both live in Texas now though. I guess my cousin has been married 17 years to the same guy. So, that's good I guess things must be working out, they have I think 3 or 4 kids too. Anyway good to talk to her and, see she's doing good, she said it's freezing in Texas right now, which kind of surprised me, but I guess even the desert has winter, now I am just drinking coffee and, watching tv. I hope all is well, where you are

That is nice you got to talk to your cousin after that amount of time. It is sad because I have 3 cousins (siblings), who I have not talked to in years and wont be talking to anytime soon. Their Dad (my Mom's brother) and my Mom had a BAD falling out. They wont talk to each other except through lawyers. It is sad.

That is very sad. I hope your family comes together, she just messaged me out of the blue, no reason we hadn't talked other than she's in Texas.

That is awesome you were able to reconnect with your cousin after 17 years and have a wonderful talk! I bet you were very thrilled. Did you get to talk to her on Facebook? Skype? I have cousins I have never met across the world, in Vietnam. I recently were able to connect with them via Facebook. I have never seen them in my life for about 20+ years, but with Facebook - I am now able to view their pictures, chat with them occasionally, and etc! It is a great feeling!!

That is really good! It is always good catching up with loved ones especially if you haven't seen or heard from them for a long time.

It is really heartwarming for both of you. That has been a long time for not talking with your cousin. At least, you can still get in touch after that. Since you can call each other and patch up things.

You mean you talked on the phone, or through Skype? It must have been good to catch up with her.

I imagine that you were happy to communicate with your cousin again after such a long time. It is snowing here this evening but not as cold as it has been lately.
