NATIONAL VISIT YOUR RELATIVES DAY
National Visit Your Relatives Day is observed on May 18. It is easy to get so caught up in the busyness of today’s fast paced lifestyle that we can soon lose touch with our relatives. National Visit Your Relatives Day reminds us to stop for a moment, take some much-needed time and visit those relatives we care about and have not seen for a while.
Sometimes it is hard when families do not live close. Often siblings, cousins, parents and dear relatives are scattered across the country. A visit can be a phone call or a face-to-face live chat on the computer. With today’s technology, we are now able to communicate with loved ones living far away, yet seeing them as if they are right beside us.
Life is much too short not to make time for family.
