my parental unit came to visit me. they got to see my new house. they treated me to a new washer and dryer. they told me just how proud of me they were and it made me feel really good because on most days adulting is hard. it was nice to just be the child of adults for a weekend. i am number two of five siblings and they are especially gifted at making me feel as if i’m one of one. i am forever wrapped in their love and it exudes. love is knowing you are loved.
