I found coming home to be a whole new experience since last I was here. Being away for so long made me appreciate what I have here. Not only a roof, a set of parents, a loving younger brother, but love and kindness and warmth. Hugging my brother and giving my father a peck on the cheek and holding onto my mother’s hand-they will always be so dear to me.
We have a hard time appreciating the people who are with us the entire time. Don’t we? We fight and argue. We laugh and play. We care and love. It’s like a familial version of the three wise monkeys.
