Moment of truth: I’ve been struggling a lot with putting my worth in the things that I do, i.e. my service to the youth and parish, how good of a friend/sister/daughter I am. But being with my family this weekend was exactly what I needed :) it was super refreshing without it having to be this huge dramatic retreat weekend get away; it was just my family being my family. It was amazing because I didn’t have to be anyone but Mare. I knew I didn’t have to be or do anything; I was just me. I helped where I could but all in all it was just a weekend to be present to each other, and our presence was enough for each other. I’ll be honest and say I’ve been feeling a little guilty and distant from my family cause I feel like all I’ve been doing lately is working and kickin it with friends. But the beautiful thing I was reminded of this weekend was that my fam will for real always be there. They didn’t question where I’ve been or give me crap for work; they loved me where I was at in that moment and even supported my service. I love that we can pick up like no time has ever passed since we last seen each other. Ohhh gosh it was just a sigh of relief to know that I didn’t have to do or be anything this weekend, just Ninang/Tita Mare, just a goofy, silly, little cousin, just Mare. Iono I’m just feeling blessed to finally have family time again! And I’m excited for the summer! Not that that means anything cause we all basically work real jobs and so don’t get anymore summer breaks but whatever! Hahah summer time always means more family time, no matter what, we make it work :)

Anyways, wow it’s been a while since I’ve processed my thoughts via blog. Hope that made sense. Haha. But to sum it up, I’m just thankful for my family. They keep me grounded and real and present to the moment. I feel like only with them life just stops and we can just be and love and enjoy each others’ company. Such a gift :)
