In his words:
"For one, there are the meals — home cooked Vietnamese lunches, bowls of freshly cut fruit. Dad would barge into my room with them, regardless of whether I was in a meeting or not. Once, it was a meeting with our CFO, but that didn’t stop dad from interrupting. Because what could be more important and urgent than a plate of food that’s *still* hot?"
The young man said the closeness he and his dad found living together is what he cherishes most, adding that it's what he couldn't have imagined possible when he moved out 15 years ago.
"It’s a closeness I couldn’t have imagined possible when I came out 15 years ago, when things were tense. We barely spoke for years, and a void grew between us. It got better little by little, but over the last few months, we’ve built a bond. I didn’t expect him to tell me over dinner last month, 'Whether you are age 6, or 36, you will always be my son, and I will always love you'.”
The young man shared two photos of himself and his dad. One of the photos was when he was six and the second one was when he was 36.
"We have both weathered immense trauma and grief together these past two years. But in that, I found the gift of healing. The privilege of witnessing how our parents never stop growing and evolving (just like us). The magic ingredient is time. It’s filled me with more kindness than I know what to do with. I hope to pass it forward. So thanks, dad. For the lunches and this gift."
