Being yourself. When does one remember getting to be fully themselves as a teenager, without any concern for status or appearances? But when my daughter, Zoie and her cousins, Lindsey and Emme are together, that is what they get to be…themselves. When I am around them, I feel happier like life is how it should be; with endless chatter, giggles and complete and utter honesty. It’s quite beautiful.
There are a lot of reasons I need comfort food at the moment, but at the very top of the list is the number of people still missing in Japan. The live footage has been unforgettable, imprinted on my brain and inside my heart.
