Day 162/365

Family day! I've been trying to make more time to spend with my family out in Rockwall. I'm so blessed (and I know I've said it over and over again, but it's so true) to have my birth mom and grandparents (and half brother too!) in my life. I spent the latter half of the day just... vegging out with family-- feeling loved and accepted and happy.

I always know when it's time to visit because I can feel myself drawn to them, making more frequent phone calls, feeling my heartstrings pulled in that direction. I start thinking about family dinners, about talking through movies. I start remembering stupid jokes, and hearing about moments from before we reunited.

We're so different, my family and I. But I am a part of them, and they of me. And my heart wanders there, my mind wanders there because I belong with them. It used to be harder, spending time with them because of how differently we see the world sometimes. But in the last year, maybe two... things have really changed.

And I find myself drawn more and more to their arms, to their lives, to their love. And i'm so glad for that.

So today, I followed my heart, followed my mind and refreshed myself in their company.

And as I always do these days...

I loved every minute of it. And when I left to go home I felt at peace, and rejuvenated, and ready to challenge the week ahead.
