Slowly but surely picking the pieces back up. My Uncle is in a better place and though my heart still aches and often feels empty, I am starting to accept and live with this fact. He is very much loved and will never be forgotten.
Thanks to everyone for their concerns, prayers, thoughts, and kind words. Whether it be MySpace, Facebook, text, email, comment, or phone calls (which I got very many of), I really appreciated every single one of them. Its times like these when I really appreciate the little things which mean most. Its also times like these when I realize who my true friends are and who actually really cares about me enough to take 10 seconds of their time to acknowledge what I'm going through. Definitely not a cry for attention, but a nice wake up call and realization of who will probably care most or be there for me when I need them most. I needed great people to talk to, and my true friends did not hesitate to give me a call and lend me their ear and shoulder. :)
I am blessed with some wonderful people in my life... the best family and the best friends. I've learned not to take anyone for granted and to express my feelings and gratitude towards those I love more often. My Mom is great with "I Love You's"... and I think I'm starting to pick it up from her.
My family... is amazing! Where would I be without them? Ahhh... I don't even want to imagine. I know that we get into our little fights and petty BS... but at the end of the day, I know that I couldn't ask for more. I'm looking forward to family reunions. My Cousin (Bong Voeun) said that he does not want to have to wait until tragic hits to actually hang out as a family. Its hard to get everyone together... especially considering how big my family is. BUT... we are definitely going to work on that. I promise.
