Yesterday was one of the days that Tet Festival was being celebrated at Mile Square Park. It was a benefit for us because our family actually just walked there instead of taking a car with us and experience the trouble of finding a parking spot.
But that’s not why I’m talking about this. Tet Festival brought my family together as a whole, which was something we haven’t done in a long time. It was a time for all of us to hang out and enjoy each other’s company. Not to mention also get our exercise going!
I’ve realized along the way as we walked that my life may not be perfect. My dad’s not here with us, we’ve faced trials and difficulties before we moved here in this wonderful city, and I’m in a constant battle with school and of course falling in love; however, it’s the little things we hold onto and treasure the most. Family time made me realize that. Soon, I might not even be able to experience that wonderful feeling in the future.
Family time equals memories. And to me, memories are those little things that make me want to enjoy life no matter what. Not to mention, it was our first time attending that festival.
Therefore, it was kind of an unopened valentine’s box that’s finally been opened. Happy Valentine’s Day.
