I have a very extended family.

When we first got married my husband gave up trying to remember second cousins, cousins once and twice removed, cousins-in-law, etc., etc. and called them all my ‘step-neighbors-in-law.”

While most of my relatives are from European ancestry like me, I also have step-neighbors-in-law who are African-American, Japanese, Latino, and Jewish.

To me, they’re just family and I love them all.

If only all people would just consider each other family the world would be a better place.
