Family ties in this time of the year

When is a better time to rekindle your relationships, but during festival season? Yes, you may busy with those last minute shopping and cleaning the house for the CNY, but yet again, you are looking forward to it. Why? Because you would be able to meet up and celebrate this auspicious day with your family members.

After married, I seldom have time to visit the side of my family. Occupied with work and responsibility of a wife and mother, I don’t have the extra time to visit my parents. What a shame, although we live very near, only 20 minutes drive distance. Once a while, when I missed them, I will call up and try to catch up with them. However we make it a must to have breakfast or dinner together at least once a week. Good enough?? *wink*

I am looking forward to CNY as I would be spending times with my parents, and little gal with her grandparents. Not only that, I am able to meet up with my uncles, aunties and cousins that I seldom meet up now. Same time, visiting my friends who I have lost contact after having little gal. I know my parents are looking forward to spend time with their only grandchild as they have ready a spare room for us in case we planned to stay overnight or little gal want to take her mid-day nap! LOL! I only knew this from my sister when she slipped this information to me few weeks ago!

For me, family ties are very important and it is getting to show some distinctions in my life now that I am a married woman. It takes me for me to be married and have kid of my own, to understand and appreciate what my parents have sacrifice for me all those years. Bringing me up to who I am now, funding me through colleges and love me unconditionally. I am very grateful for what they have done for me! Even as I am married, they still worry about me in term of relationships with hubby and financial aspect. So, that’s what people always said “no matter what, you are always their children in their eyes!” They just cant stop worry about you! LOL

Besides celebrating CNY with my parents, I would be able to enjoy myself with my mum’s delicious and home-cooked food! I do miss my mum’s cooking, ok? She usually prepare Lo Ark (Braised Duck), Spring Roll served with lettuce wrap, and Curry Chicken every Chinese New Year. Not so sure what is on the menu this year. No worry, I shall update you on the reunion dinner this Wednesday evening, ok? So, stay tune!! :)

Hi Rose, that was a really sweet entry. Family is definitely important. My father actually came to the US to visit me over the weekend. He's going to be staying for 12 days, so I'll get to spend new year with him. It's funny because I don't realize how much I missed him until I saw him again.

Happy New Year to you and your family. Good luck with everything!
