My sister is turning 40 next week, and I'm so excited that we're gonna be able to spend some time with my mom. My mom and my sister are my rocks, man, and I really am so grateful to God that they're both still alive and well, and that they are there for me. That's why moving to a different country is always such a difficult decision to make... And while I'm not particularly enamoured with South Africa right now, any relocation would require them to be with me.
I just really feel there is no point in living 16,000km away from the people you love. I dunno how others do it. For me, blood really is thicker than water.
