It’s tough living in South Bend sometimes because we don’t have any family living in the immediate area. Family is a very important thing for us. They are the ones that will unconditionally support you through whatever situation arises. Whether you are sick or you have hit a major accomplishment, family will be there cheering you on. We’ve found it tougher to travel since KristaRose requires more rest and stops while we go along. We are very lucky to have a lot of family in Chicago that we can stay with. Whether it’s on our first stop into Chicago with Manang Grace and Manong Ray (and their very cute and rambunctious kiddos Gabe, Jonah and Benjamin) or in the heart of the suburbs with Tita Ling, Tito Fred, Steph and Jek, we seem to be covered wherever we go. I know I’m not mentioning all of the family we do get to see but the point is that having family close and so willing to help us out and provide a place to stay is really helpful for us not only for the act itself but seeing family lifts our spirits as well.
So for today’s thank you, I’d like to thank all of our family that allows us to stay with them. This includes Tita Ter and family in DC and Manong RJ, Manang Rachel and Caleb in San Diego. Thanks for being so welcome and thanks for letting us spend some moments of life with you.
