Cousins are ready-made friends for life. I’d like to think that this is true, especially for those who are not too far apart in years. Josh and Zoë are lucky enough to have a bunch of cousins to whom they are quite close. There are six of them. It helps that between the oldest and youngest in the group is only a difference of 2.5 years.
We only get to see the cousins once a year on account of our living oceans apart. That doesn’t seem to matter, though, because every time they get together, it’s like they just met up yesterday. Now, apart from phone calls, we have Skype, Whatsapp, and emails, so keeping in touch is not a problem. We all do our best to make sure these cousins grow up as close as they can be, distance notwithstanding.
