Holidays are a beautiful thing, for it means spending time with family. People you don’t get to see every day. The ones you keep up with over email and the occasional letter, phone call, or text. The ones that you always wish you’d make more time for. The ones that get you. The ones that when you see them, you pick up right where you left off. The ones that laugh at your jokes (even if they’re only moderately funny). And the ones that you love with all your heart.
May we all have the kind of love the Martinez family has. May we love each other. Hug each other. Make fun of each other. And laugh together. And then maybe, just maybe, as an added bonus, take a picture together. Because in 1 year, in 5 years, in 20 years, we should all be able to look back and feel the same crazy happiness that was felt in that moment together.
