a taste of home

It’s winter break and I have a chance to be back  to my “tropically hot” homeland. I am more than happy to leave the chilly wind and snow of  China and bask in the sunshine again.   Coming home always brought mixed emotions for me. I am happy to see my family and friends yet also sad that I missed most of their milestone experiences…happy to see  my “mama’s” remnant of  a garden yet sad that most of her flowers are gone…happy to see my hometown’s booming economy yet sad  that her natural beauty is slowly fading overtaken by the “so-called” urban development…BUT  still I  am grateful to God who gives me this short break to enjoy and cherish home ..although I will leave it again yet at least I have the chance to experience the sights and smells of my “beloved” home.

Just  a month ago , a sister of mine shared  this photo…it is one of the garden flowers we had at my parents home. My sister who is not really into photography but more into flowers has managed to take this beautiful shot after a heavy downpour . My mother who passed  away six  years ago  was a green thumb, had left so many beautiful flowers to us .  My parents home were occupied now with other siblings so change is inevitable somehow,  just recently they wanted a bigger lawn for kids to run around so we lost some of the flowers that my mother had cared for  many years. But I am so happy to see that they saved this  beautiful shrub, one of my favorite.
