Home is....

My mom left yesterday back to Vietnam for a 2 week visit. The circumstances this time are quite bittersweet.  She will see her own mother again, but it will be to say goodbye. She will see her brothers and sisters again, but it will be unknown when she will see them again. A few years will stretch to 5, and that will become 10. I can't begin to fathom how painful it must be to be so far away from family as I am so fortunate to be here with mine. To not be able to celebrate with, to comfort, to just reach out and hug someone for so long.

My mom amazes me everyday with her strength and sacrifice. It only makes me strive even harder to be able to even hold a candle next to her.
