My son is the light of my life and he is a wonderful child (of course, I would think so!). He is well behaved, has great manners, is outgoing, courteous, helpful, fun, and very healthy. He makes my bad days worth living and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for him.
My husband is my other true love and without him, I would be lost. There is a 22-year age difference between us, but you would never know it. We compliment each other so well and he supports whatever I want to do. It takes a strong, giving man to be able to deal with my health problems and together we continue to grow stronger as a couple.
My parents are my other source of great support. They are always there to help whenever needed and they put their own needs after the needs of their three children. My mother and father are very giving and they have always supported me in whatever I decide to do.
They have always believed that I was sick and never once called me a hypochondriac or made me feel as though it was all in my head.
My sister and I are great friends, too. It is so neat to have a great relationship with your sister. I have witnessed a lot of petty fighting and anger between other families and I am so grateful mine is not like this. Like me, my sister has had a rough road, but hers has been more financial and having to deal with being a single parent all of these years. She has done an excellent job, though, because her 18-year-old son is mature, helpful, kind and just plain great! He has great potential for his future – just graduated from high school and is working two jobs! He is soon to be a daddy and because my sister has been down this road with being a young parent, she is able to help him through.
My brother is a year younger than me and he is still ornery – just like when he was a kid! His 3-year-old son is a chip off the old block and looks and acts just like him! My brother also was a young father and he has a 17-year-old son who is doing very well in school, has a job and his own vehicle. He is also a very polite young man with a lot of potential for the future. My brother has a 6-year-old daughter who will start the first grade this fall. She is all girl and loves to play with dolls and dress up – she has tons of shoes! My brother went back to school and earned his engineering degree – he just graduated last December. He has done very well for himself.
All in all I am truly blessed and thankful for a wonderful family!
