At this moment it’s when I realize how the family is important. In these hard times, I now know how it is to miss the people you love. We usually don’t get the opportunity to get back together with our own flesh and blood may be because our lives are flooded with work and other responsibilities. But what has burned into my mind is that family is part of our responsibility too. It’s who we are.
We always went to my grandma’s place every year, once. It is so shameful that it has dawned on me that I should have done that more often. We could only stay there for one day and that was it. I can’t believe in as much as we loved her, this is how we reciprocated our love. To add salt to the injury, last year we did not visit her at all. A gush of disappointment just hit and I could feel the pain. How could I have missed Christmas with my… it just felt odd? So this year I decided to make it up to her. It was the right thing to do. My mind just could not stop thinking about it.
Our last visit was more than just a visit, it was a thrill, sensational, peaceful, and tranquil. It was just perfect. Every speck of joy and fun that we had was worth it. We would go with my sisters and explore the forest, pick tea leaves for the first time, climb trees, and tons of crazy stuff. It was very mind exploding. At night we would tell scary stories near the bone fire as the supper was getting ready. We would almost crack our ribs when we laughed at our grandma’s jokes. I miss the moments. (Tears)
This moment as we hit the road we forgot the way and we got lost. And the driver said how we could have forgotten our grandma’s place. We ought to have visited her more. Do you know how embarrassing it was? Anyway, we arrived safely. (Don’t ever forget to buy something for them. For my family, the signature thing you never forget is BREAD) we found they were good but not good enough. Thank God we were there to put a smile on their faces. We brought back the life that we thought we lost. It was epic. Wait, it was more than epic. It was the best time of my life. And now I have the chance to write it to you. Don’t ever forget your loved one. Peace out. (Smiles)
