Family



I have really been missing my family lately.

Thats a picture of my mum and dad. I was so lucky to be able to go see them this past summer, for a short little visit. I keep trying to convince them to move out here to B.C. but it doesn't seem to be working. I have been realizing lately how much a child relies on its parents. From birth where you are needing to be nutured, loved, protected and craddled. Then as a child where you are starting to explore this uknown around you, and you need a bit more space but still want the love, care, the good night kisses and to know that its ok to still believe in wishes. Then you move on to the teenage years...oh look out! You are finding out who you are and in the midst of it all you still treasure and long for the love, the affirmation, the freedom and the resonsibilty your parents give you. Soon Ill be 21...hmm officaly an "adult" and I can say that even now when I feel like my world is crashing down around me, or when I am in the midst of extreme joy the first thing that I do is pick up the phone to call my parents. There is no one in the world like them...
