My Querencia

It's such a relief to come home to find JP and Brian listening to music and talking, perhaps deciding what to eat. I feel joy when they immediately greet me with news of their day, updates on their lives, and questions only their older sister can answer. Happiness is watching anime together and then discussing plots, themes, and characterization. Happiness is hanging out with JP and Brian. Home and comfort is when we all crowd into their small room: me reading a novel, Brian playing video games (Play Station 2), and JP napping or surfing the Internet.
