It took me 6 hours to drive from Los Angeles all the way to the Bay Area. My whole family lives up north and it’s a blessing to be able to feel the love, support and prayers all the way in SoCal. Family to me is EVERYTHING. I only get to come down for the holidays and summer vacation. Since I get a two week payed spring break I am able to spend this years Easter with my family. The joys of being a high school teacher!
Usually when I come home I tend to spend the day with family and the night time with old high school friends. I haven’t seen my family since January, and I have missed their home cooked meals. Nobody can cook like my family.
I’m also excited to see my father. He is in a rehab center further up north which is 3 hours away from my hometown. He is recovering from his stroke. I will pay him a visit next weekend. Thanks to everyone that has been praying for my dad. He is getting much better. He can finally eat on his own, and write his name. I cannot wait until he’s able to talk and walk. Through it all I’ve learned patience. God is strengthening my father, and I trust in his power.
