While I may not be as close as I should be or would like to be to my cousins, aunts and uncles.. Family has always been important to me.  I may not talk to them but I keep up with them.  My immediate family, brother, mother, niece are the ones I do keep up with on a daily or semi daily basis and have my whole life.  They have always been the closest.
But, when you find out a family  member whom you  may not have been as close to gets an illness, cancer, or even the latest COVID, it does hit.  The same goes for when you find out your partners family member is sick from anything.  You care because they too, are family, or soon to be.
I do wish at many times I had been closer to my Aunts, uncles and cousins.  I have two cousins whom I am close to and speak to when I can and we keep up with each other via social media.  I also have my dads goddaughter/niece, and his brother whom I didn’t come close to until after he passed, sadly.  I wished I had known them longer and been able to be even closer to them, but I am glad for what I have now.  There were differences I guess in the marriage to my mom.  But regardless they have accepted me no differently.
When this is all said and done and we can all get back to our normal life.  Look at your family and friends and all you have around you.  Cherish each day, take it one day at a time and life each day to its fullest because, we never really know what can happen in that day.
