Family Love

It's great to finally reunite with friends and family. The last time my family was together was two and a half years ago at my cousin's wedding. I've been separated from my family most of my adult life.

At the age of 18 I decided that it was time for me to begin my life journey. After much begging and pleading, my father let me go because he knew what it meant to be able to follow your dreams and live your own life. Now that I think about it, in many ways he and I are alike.

After three years of living in my homeland of the Philippines, I flew thousands of miles to go to college in San Diego and be with the person I thought I was in love with. But that's another story....

It's been quite a journey since I left "the nest" and I've come to realize just how important my family is to me. They're back in California again and it's a blessing to be able to reconnect with them. There's nothing like a family who supports you and loves you unconditionally.
