Winter Colors Posted on 26 Dec 13:48 , 0 comments
I’m a little glum that Christmas is over for the year, but humbled and thankful that I have a family that welcomes me home every year with open arms. My mom’s graciousness, my dad’s attempts at establishing a better relationship with me, and my sibling’s understanding of where I am in life always amazes me. Coming back to New York City after spending a couple days is a little overwhelming- not the city, but the idea that they still welcome me home. Especially after I left their religion and embraced a new lifestyle that goes against everything they believe in. If I wish anything for everyone in the world, it is that they can visit home at least every now and then, no matter where life leads them. Family is important.
