Bye, family

I had a great visit with my family over the holidays! Two wonderful weeks to spend with them. I am grateful for that time, and am so glad to have them to go "home" to. The older I get, the more I appreciate and love my big family. I used to wish I was an only child all the time. Now I can't imagine what that would be like, and don't want to! How lonely and dull! I feel sorry for people who don't have any siblings because they have missed out on a special bond. I love my younger sisters & brother so much. I'm glad we are so close. It's awesome to have someone's back and to know they will always have yours. I truly have a great support system.

My parents are wonderful, I have the best mom ever! She has taught me so much, more than anyone else in my life really. She's a woman of patient acceptance and understanding. And I always thought my dad was the smartest man alive, still do. He has taught me numerous things about plants and the outdoors! Whenever I want to know something nature-related I always think "I wish my dad was here!"

There's something about a big family that is so special. Maybe because it's a rarity in our day and time. Let's face it, kids are expensive! But I hope to have a big family of my own one day, full of natural and adoptive children. Yes, I want to adopt when I am older. To me, it doesn't make sense not to. Family is the most important thing to me in the world. They're the people who know me best, forgive me most, love me unconditionally! They don't expect anything from me, other than to be loved and accepted in return. Family. What a marvelous word.

My visit with my family was wonderful, but it was so hard to say goodbye. As glad as I am to be back in warm California, I can't help but to wish I was back with them. The ones who love me no matter what. In this moment I find myself wondering how I will ever be content with living so far from them.
