… And we wept. Growing up in America, I didn’t get to spend as much time with my family in Indonesia. But every time I saw my aunt, she always greeted with a big smile. It’s the way her face lit up when she smiles that conquer the months and years between us. I will miss that, her crooked teeth, the way her red lipstick stretches across her face when she smiles, and her warmth when she put her arm around me.
