Rock out…

It’s a known fact that 2,393 miles separate Los Angeles from Philadelphia and in a few hours my brother and sister-in-law will be back home and 2,393 miles from my home in Los Angeles. It was hard saying goodbye this morning knowing that soon we will be separated by almost an entire length of a continent. As I drove to work I was thankful that I got to spend time with my brother, I was thankful that for a weekend my family was whole again. It was a beautiful thing seeing my mother completely ecstatic as Chris and Kate came down the escalator at LAX. It seemed to renew my mom; it gave her an energy that I haven’t seen in quite some time. Though separated by distance Chris and I are much of the same person with the same sense of humor, thoughts and even mannerisms, which I’ve learned can make for a fun and yet inappropriate time when we get together.

 

It’s good to be together again.

 

 

I’m learning that life has a funny way of manifesting itself through family and how often I forget how important family is to the spiritual wellness of human life. Families are like the tiny little sea creatures in tide pools, drawn open and laid bare by the ebbing tide and yet completely dependent on its return for renewal.
