All the families

As I waived goodbye to my uncle and aunt going back to their home in Montreal  today I thought about belonging to more than one family, or should I say, my family is bigger than I could ever imagine. Of course they are my blood relation anyway, but also our mutual history is interwoven in a unique way. They left me a box of  baklava sweets  they brought from Dubai.  Once the candies are finished I will put the box on my desk and keep letters and envelopes in it. Could I have ever imagined that a box engraved with Arabic letters will remind me of them and that part of me  which is still there in Canada with them?
