We are family

MSU News - November 16, 2016 - 1:21pm
You know you've had a great time when you find a purse full of M&Ms, a bunch of fun selfies on your phone and your shoes on top of your jewelry box the next morning. Not to mention, your muscles are sore from some wild, and probably not very graceful, dancing. Last Friday I joined my big, crazy, diverse family and celebrated my nephew's wedding in grand style. Patrick is a fantastic young man, who will probably discover a cure for cancer someday. His new wife, Ushashi, is just as brilliant. I couldn't be happier for the two of them and to welcome her into the family. The wedding was a beautiful event - blending not just families but cultures from different sides of the world. Ushashi's parents traveled to Michigan from India. Her sister flew in from Germany. Friends from both sides came from across the country. My daughter came from New York. Cocktail dresses blended with vibrant saris. Guests danced in Bollywood style and the Cha Cha slide. Young, old, all colors, all shapes, gay, straight, varied religions and backgrounds - this is my family. This is my tribe. This is whom I love. With all the hate in the world these days, it was a welcome relief to be surrounded by so much love. I'll admit, not all family gatherings work out so wonderfully. There's been a fair share of disagreements, even arguments throughout the years, but in the end, the love is what matters. I think everyone was grateful for a chance to just have fun with each other.
