Today is Monday !
And its all about Me today & my post is about my other family . My hubbies family :
You might not know a few facts about me . After finishing college here in Louisiana. I went to the Midwest to work and meet my husband. He’s from Ohio and born in the United States from parents from China / Hong Kong. They have a close knit family that all have worked together in a restaurant and bar for many years in Ohio. But made sure there kids went to college so they had a better life and opportunity.
My hubby moved away from home for college and a job which is where we meet. I was a little scared when we first meet (language ) but they accepted me with opens arms. And I made do with the language and was drawn into the family with love and acceptance. And always made sure they included favorite food and drinks on the menu so I felt Welcome even if I missed the jokes and part of the conversation around me. Yes- At the time I was the only non Asian at the family table.
But they introduced me to a wonderful culture & way of life that;s not that much different then what I was use to at home –
- A close loving family
- That always had each others back
- Food is always important (rice) -shared together at a table filled with love .
- Acceptance of others
- willing to help others when needed.
So today I am wishing my
老爺 (lou5 je4) a happy day !!! Lisa Jung
