Things were different. I had a complete family then.
A mom, dad, my sisters and my brothers.
This Christmas, I have my dad, and his side of the family.
My parents are now divorced. I have an allotted six hours with my mother tomorrow, and then one week of break is hers, so I won’t be going back to Boston.
It’s a horrible feeling, honestly.
I’m so overly jealous of people with complete families over the holidays. Jealous of the kids who don’t have to make a choice on where to go once they come back from school. Moms or dads? Where did I go last year? Where are Tessa and Corey going? What about alex and Cody, where will they be? Do we all go together?
So I guess what I learned, is don’t take your family for granted. You never know when it’s going to break.
