In celebration of Valentine’s Day, a story of family, tradition, acceptance, and love…..
Every week, my family meets up for coffee on Tuesdays. We call it "Tuesday family day!" It is usually me, my uncle, two aunts, my mom, and sometimes some of my cousins when they are available. It started years ago as we would all go to my grandparents’ house to help them with different needs they had around their house as they got older and couldn't do as much, and has evolved over the years, after their passing, into meeting at the local Starbucks and enjoying good visiting time! We have now been going to the Starbucks for probably almost 10 years, and even have many friends who are baristas there and a few people who also end up being Tuesday customers too. All that to say, all of the people surrounding this 'event' have also been very invested in bringing Katie home and have been overjoyed to see her at our Tuesday family day! What an extra special Tuesday family Day it was now that Katie is home!! Oh, and we also take a selfie of the event every week!
In the spirit of love, we encourage and challenge you this month to start your own tradition!
