When I first moved to Flushing, part of me was thinking pretty selfishly. Coming out from freedom in college to live under another set of rules was hard, and I didn’t want to take care of obligations that I didn’t want to do. It was all about me. But through moving out (and growing up!), God has definitely pressed upon me how important family is. My parents supported me throughout the entire process, constantly check up on me, are there for me in any situation…I always used to take for granted how they raised me and always thought of me first, but I have such deep appreciation for them now. When I hurt my back and couldn’t move for days, my mom would say, “Just come home! I’ll take care of you!” I just didn’t realize how much love there was. (1/2)
