    Update: My dads surgery is scheduled

    for next week. I'm trying to be strong, but I'm terrified. He's been in and out of hospitals so many times in my life and, every time he gets out, his health declines again in a matter of months. Sometimes it just feels like all the progress he's made is for nothing in the end...

    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.

    I am a descendent of Simon bar Kochba.

    He was a rebel against the might of Rome. I am an only child. My parents are Gabriel and Miryam Astruc. I have many cousins, since my mother has two brothers and a sister. My father has two sisters.

    I've been told by many people

    who knew my mom that she loved us (her daughters ) very much. She died when I was barely one year old so I particularly have no memory of her at all ; which sometimes makes me wonder — makes me long for something that could have existed if life turned out differently. My dad...

    This is why it hurts

    that my father's parents don't bother to visit or call us. The last time I saw them I was really little. Since then they have become "good Christians" and go to church almost every Sunday. They post on Facebook about praying and being close to God. I'm Christian too, but I don't...

    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.

    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.

    With that little mind I could only figure it out

    that a house is made up of bricks and a home is made of mother, father, brothers and sisters. And now when I am all grown up I believe the same. The moral of the story is "You can own a house without a family, but you can never own a home without a family."

    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 really look up to my brother.

    He truly is a man of God and I love him so much. I feel so blessed to have such amazing family! Not everyone gets that. There's definitely been some drama, but we're tight. I couldn't live without them.

    God blessed me with the best family possible.

    I was always told by my family that no matter what happens I could go to them. We have our little fights every now and then but I know that they will always have my back. They helped me come out of my depression and taught me ways to deal with my anxiety. I love my crazy,weird...

    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...

    My family is my biggest strength.

    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.

    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.
