Both of my parents came to this country from Italy. They were never able to return to see any of their extended families and this was something that made them sad for their entire lives. They both passed away a few years ago. But in their honor, and to remind myself that life is for living, I have just made plane reservations for Italy! My daughter is going with me and while I only plan on seeing very, very distant cousins, I will have checked something important off of my Bucket List!
