    I cannot say that I know how it feels like to

    give birth, but being next to my wife's bed holding her hand and trying to calm her down while my baby was coming made me understand what she goes through to bring a new life to this earth. I believe a man is that person who looks in his wife's eyes and he says "you are the...

    More than anything else in life,

    I think family helps define the person that you are, the person you inevitably become.

    Hell yes! When everything else is ********

    away, what is left, but family. Yes, family is very important. Some families are screwed up to the gills, and people may have to find a family that isn't a traditional family, e.g. friends, etc. Family is important, everyone needs the support and nurturing they get from...

    I wanted to write in my facebook

    but i'm too shy to write this so I write it here. By family, I included here my relatives, friends and people who helped and cared about me. I'm so sorry that I didn't do anything to help you, nor did I even send a message or phone call to ask how are you. I wanted too, but 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.

    Update: My dad is recovering from surgery

    really quickly! I'm, honestly, shocked considering how sick he is. They sent him home just a couple of days after surgery and he was walking a week later! It's a very slow, painful walk, but it's a walk. He can't walk for long distances yet, so he uses a walker around the house...

    Yesterday I went out with a guy friend of mine.

    We walked into town and got ice cream. On the way, we ran into my older sister's fiancé. We stopped to talk to him. He stuck his hand out and introduced himself as my big brother. I had older brothers, but I never really had an older brother around in my life. Hearing that just...

    I believe family is very important

    but I don't think it is everything. Family can be dangerous and toxic if they preach hate to each other. But I love my family because that's not what mine is like at all. My brother is the best man I know personally but can be closed minded.

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    You never realize how much they mean to you

    until they're gone. I complained about my little brother and sister so much that I didn't even think about how badly it would still hurt... almost four years later. I miss them with every fiber of my being.

    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.
