On this first official edition of On This Sunday for 2015, I’m hosting my mother’s visit to the Bay Area this weekend.
She’s visiting from South Korea for the next month or so, traveling to different parts of the United States to meet with my relatives on my paternal side as well as some of her friends.
It is rather challenging to host someone who doesn’t speak English while I don’t speak Korean. You’d have to know the full backstory regarding my relationship with my biological mother (or at least the gist of it) in order to understand why moments like this are rare, remarkable and somewhat controversial.
For the large part, it’s been a drama-free weekend and I’m doing my part to ensure positivity all around as much as possible.
Have a wonderful week, America!
