The family. We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another’s desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.
This sums up the week with the BB family. We took turns being sick. Joanna and Doug used up my toothpaste. Doug tortured me by eating red velvet cheesecake while I drank my Gatorade and nibbled on crackers. Chiangs locked Grace out of the room at 5 a.m. We laughed. But we know the common thread that binds us.
It was a gift to have this experience together.
