I never really realized how fast my life is going by until today. After watching my sisters christmas present to my parents, I can not fathom how quick it really goes. And how much I take for granted every single day. My family and I have been through so much together, and to think I have not stopped and thanked them for everything, strains me. I got so caught up lately in my own problems and myself and what I have to deal with that I haven’t even stoppped to say Hey Mom, did I tell you how much I love you? Or Danielle, thanks for always looking out for me and being my rock through everything. Dad!, the joke you just cracked? Yeah it was awful but you made me laugh until I can’t breathe. I don’t want to be one of those people who are like ”Oh you never really realize what you have until its gone.” I shouldn’t have to wait to realize that. But my family isn’t perfect, believe me. We fight constantly. What family doesn’t? But I’m thankful that I have a family to fight with. ”I hate my life” or “I’m just going to kill myself” are phrases I should not be using as constantly as I do. Even though my life may not be fantastic all the time, I would not change it for the world.
