I have a VERY extended family. When I first got married my husband gave up trying to distinguish between cousins, second cousins, cousins once removed, cousins of cousins, aunts and uncles, great aunts and uncles, etc., etc. so he called them all “step neighbors in law.
Now that many family members in my generation have become mothers or fathers-in-law and grandparents, the family has become even more complicated.
And I have relatives living thousands of miles away and some in other countries.
But family is family and I love them all, even though I can’t see them in person.
I’m grateful that many of us are able to keep in touch through the internet.
There are lots of problems in our modern world, but improved communication is one thing not to complain about.
