    I believe when you reach a certain age you

    begin to redefine what a family is and begin forming your own, chosen, family. I have such a fam and consider them as close, if not sometimes closer, as my blooded family. Tomorrow will be spent with them. My amazing sister in Christ and her (my) boys. Her hubs and sons are my...

    Promised to give an update on the water heater

    situation so here it is ! (My big Sis awoke to her basement wet due to a leaking water heater) Well, that day in agreement we condemned the 1991 heater as not worth any effort to fix as it could very well spring another leak and wet its bed again. So, $1000 later a new tankless...

    Family is the most important thing to me.

    Friends come and go but family is forever, and that's comforting

    I am the last person in my family with my

    surname. I am the last person in the world with my surname (the family tree didn't spread far). I am male, 38 with no kids or current girlfriend. I live abroad from my birthplace, which is different to the origin of my surname. The family lineage will likely die with me...

    I never had a mom and dad,

    but I hope that one day I can have a big family: husband, kids, dogs, cats lmao. Today I'm okay with that, but when I was a child every friend I made was confused about that and made me feel very weird.

    My brother is nineteen years older

    than me. Meaning he was an only child until his freshman year of college. He settled down pretty late so he was 41 years old when his son was born. My sister-in-law passed away when my nephew was three but my brother has done a great job raising his son. Even so, being that my...

    Permanent

    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 can't even stress how much I value the

    importance of family. My family drives me crazy, but I wouldn't trade them for anything. Most of my life lessons, both bitter and sweet, I learned from my family. They aren't perfect. Neither am I. But we learn together. And even now, years later, we are learning how to...

    A couple of days ago I was in the kitchen

    washing dishes and saw my dad outside. His hair flared out at the side, his gray strands mixed with his black hair. I never noticed his gray hair until now. This makes me sad because he's getting older and older. Someday he will leave my family and I behind. I want to go back to...

    I grew up in a large family.

    Unfortunately, those days are gone and it makes me long for those wonderful people who helped mold and shape me. I especially miss my Daddy.

    I share lots of bummer stories,

    so I wanted to share this really upbeat one: I live in an apartment complex, and there are quite a few folks that I don't know all that well, or at all - beyond their exterior looks, and the car they drive. Well, there is this guy that parks outside my window; that is kind of...

    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.

    Family is very important

    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.

    Don't get too close too anyone.

    Except your family. Because their the only ones who'll stay by you till your death. They're not perfect they're not evil. Be cautious about who you trust. As an elder of mine has said that, 'This World is like a Snake, soft and smooth to touch but full of venom inside.' Be...

    when I designed a greeting card for my Sister in law who was on her way to her 7th child that maybe she should realize its a vagina and not a clown car....this did not go over well.
