Dad's Brother

My uncle who is my dad's younger brother lives in Vietnam and he called to wish us a Happy Lunar New Year tonight. His first daughter helped him call via FaceTime as always and I finally picked up after several missed calls.

He cried and wish he could visit my dad, but with current happenings with COVID, it doesn't seem possible. For the first time in years, he did not bring up my future regarding getting married and having a family. He wished me good health so I could take care of my dad. He said he is healthy and can still lift weights and play soccer. He is only two years younger than my dad. 

“The race is long and, in the end, it’s only with yourself.”
