This is an archived blog from when I ran Conscious Public Relations Inc. from 2008-2018. Excuse the potential outdated-ness!

It’s BC’s first long weekend in February which means we have both Chinese New Year and Family Day to celebrate on Monday the 11th.

Today I am in such gratitude for my family. Not only are they the makeup of who I am but they add richness to my life. My immediate family consists of only four people, but I have a brother-in-law and niece who I can’t picture living without; my life partner Leo who is now a part of my family; and then on my mom’s side I have 6 aunts and 2 uncles; and on my dad’s side I have 3 aunts, 2 uncles, and 10 cousins, one who passed away a number of years ago. I have two living grandparents, and lots of other cousins of parents and second cousins I don’t nearly spend as much time with as I’d like to.

The greatest part of a big family is the conversation. And the food. Filipino food consists of a lot of meat; which means it is hard to indulge. But I do anyway, because the food is made with love. Together with the food and conversation, there is such richness in that experience.

I’d also like to thank my deceased family who continue to be my spiritual guides. I haven’t set up my altar at my new place yet but I have already framed a picture of them as a reminder that they are always with me.

I hope you are thankful for the family you have today, no matter whether they are blood-related or not. We are all connected and lucky to have the good people that surround us!
