Family Reunion

We gathered here today under one roof for a Family Reunion...

Not knowing faces, not knowing names, only knowing that the Roots of the Family Tree had Many Fruits…

Probing each other, greeting each other, comparing notes and conversations about the early roots of the family tree, the first names of the family tree, and the many migrations of the family tree…

Smiles are on overload, curiosities as to the connections are high and filled with Silent and open Pride…

Naming of Elders Past and Present dominate the talks…Linkage is in full effect…

Who married who? And whose names changed along the way?

Everybody seems okay with being called CUZ, and you can feel the genuine love from each hug…

Each handshake, each embrace, feeds the bloodline, makes the ancestors smile at the lost roots who found their way back to each other…

The atmosphere is an oasis of love, as strangers whose only common trait is the namesake, greet and meet each other like lost sisters and brothers…

Recognizing without truly knowing family traits amongst each other’s face, from the Lips, the Nose, and the Swag…

The reunion of namesakes stirs the blood within, strengthens the family bond and creates new bonds…

New questions and the joy of discovering unknown family members, can lead to a burst in pride, a search for some answers that are personal…

The history revealed at the family reunions are uplifting, revealing and retelling things passed down for generations…

It’s a blessing to gather for a Family Reunion… Everyone should experience the surge of emotions, the surge of pride when the history of a strong, determined family comes together under one roof…

With only the namesake as an entry fee, love is put on full display, even if you just met today….

When the blood calls and responds it is a BEAUTIFUL THING…

I am a Witness…

      Wonderfully put! Voted up ++ As the family historian/roots-nut in the family, I've often wanted to do this. Alas, I no longer have the energy required to organize such an event.
