I miss home a lot. I miss sunny California skies, my bed, and all the familiar faces. Knowing that today was Father’s Day and that my family gathered together to celebrate the fathers of the family makes me sad because I wasn’t able to be there.
I talked to my grandparents today and you know what my grandpa said to me? “Aprovecha” and so that’s what I need to do. He is so strong and has made a life for himself and his family so I need to follow in his footsteps. No excuses, just do it.
I wish I was there to wish him a Happy Father’s Day in person, but for now, a phone call will have to do. Jeez, I miss them so much. I think the stress of teachNOLA makes me miss them even more because all I can think about is how hard this program is and how I -could- be chillen in a pool in West Covina, not here hoping and praying things go right.
But you know what? This is life, trials and roads we take that make us build character. My life is New Orleans for now. I need to accept it and be happy. I think I’ll be happiest when it’s July 3rd and I passed the program. Please God, lead me there.
2 weeks and 3 days to go.
This man makes me smile. Love my pops for being such a great dad for 23 years and counting! Thank you, pa.
