We are a pretty united family at least my mom tries to keep it that way. We are the ones that live far so it is kind of weird to see the relationship all the other cousins have develope and to feel you are not part of that it bothers me sometime. Therefore I try to spend time with them.
When we were younger it was easier but now they have their family, kids, jobs and other obligations makes thing more complex and difficult to stay united with the new generation. Sooner or later we might become strangers at the end and gather iup again only for weddings and such.
