The small things in life in a few paragraphs and snapshots

Down The Memory Lane

Hey Ho! 😀

How is everyone doing? I hope all is well with you. As for me, I am also doing okay. It’s a time for a re-think and a possible re-direction for me. So, I am spending a lot of time pondering actually and then try things. I found that sometimes if you’re persistent, closed doors open. Now, whether or not you get in, is not for you think about before you knock. You knock first. If the door opens, then you’ll know if you can get in or not.

Anyway, because of the pondering, I had to search through old documents and stuffs. It led me to not only the documents, but also old photos of my family. I found my mom’s photos when she was pregnant with me, my brother when he was the elder brother I hated, my dad, my grandma just before she passed away, a photo of myself at junior high school taken by my first boyfriend, and many others. It was a very touching moment. The special one was of me at 2 years old with my brother and my dad. I remembered that I used to fight a lot with my brother (and argue with my dad). But, the thing about being a family is that sometimes you have to go through that uncomfortable phase of not being able to get along with each other. Over the course of the years though, at least in my case, I found ways to get along with my brother. We accept each other as we are now. We do not necessarily agree on everything, but we get along fine.

Now, the photo. It was taken on Christmas eve, so you see a small plastic Christmas tree behind us. I was only two, so I could not pick my own dress, hence the pink girly baby thing. That was my mom’s choice. (as I grew older, I used to wear my brother’s t-shirts, flannel shirts and mom had to interfere and stuff my closet with clingy tight girly stuffs). And I got presents too! 😀

Have a great weekend and treasure the moments with your family (including the fights), because we love them, don’t we? 🙂
