    Maybe I watched too much tv as a kid. But I have always had this impossible dream in my mind. Of a family that likes each other. Of a mother and a father and some kids. They laugh together, and the tough times only make them stronger. Because no matter what's going on, they care...

    I always loved my family very much.

    And now I got reminded how important family is. My daddy died 1 year ago and my mommy died 3 months ago. Now that I am an orphan I can say that life is very hard and lonely without family.

    I protect them with my life.

    I protect yours with my life. I protect people's lives for a living. It's what I do, and I love my family very much, and if anything ever happened to them, I'd be devastated. So, I took up emergency services to try and protect other families as well. I never want anyone to feel...

    I came from a very loving

    and kind family. I rebelled after HS and hung out with the wrong "friends" and dropped outta College! My parents loved me through this teen drama until I came back to reality. I am now under their roof and discipline again, with money, and started School again. Mom and Dad. I...

    I absolutely believe

    that family is so important. My parents, all of my 5 siblings, and my 3 kids are all very important to me. I have a great bonding relationship with each and everyone of them. I have always had a very strong and close ties with my family.

    Never forget about your family.

    You can work and work and work and give them everything but you are taking away the most important thing yourself.I have learned the hard way. This was the biggest problem in my marriage. I will never make that mistake ever again.

    When things get tough in my family

    and one runs off, I'm always the one to chase them down and bring us together. I'm afraid of losing my family. Being together with and as a family makes me happy. I want family happiness.

    Update: My dad FINALLY had his surgery.

    He was scheduled for it back in April, but there were some complications and it was pushed back. The doctors worried there may be an infection around his old hip (his hips have already been replaced once before), so they drew some blood/took some x-rays and ran tests. The tests...

    I'm at a hospital ICU watching a family member

    virtually fade away. I've been close to her all my life. She's too young. It's heartbreaking. As I walk down the halls I see old, frail people in rooms all alone, and the look in their eyes is even more heartbreaking.

    we are the result of our childhood.

    Sure, genetics matters but the most improtant thing is the life we had in childhood, our parents learnings, our experiences, good or not. Everything helps to build our personality. What we are now is the result of our past and it will affect our future

    My Dad just left my house from a week long stay with my Husband and I and now I feel more empty than ever. All my family is 6 hours away. How I wish we were neighbors. I miss my parents, and most of all neices and nephews.

    Lost a close family member today,

    and I am just heartbroken. It just seems surreal. Take nothing for granted, tell the people you love how much you love them, and keep them in your life. May she rest in peace.
