If I could make a living off teaching the world the importance of spending time with their family I would. My family means the world to me. Growing up my family always meant a lot to me but I did not understand the importance of family until I lost my mom. Losing her was one of the biggest heartbreaks that my family had to face. Ever since then I see people who say they hate their families or that they don’t like someone in their family because of one silly thing. I wish I could teach those people that a family member could be gone in an instant. It doesn’t matter if that family member is sick and you know they are not going to make it. Their death is still a shock to you. I wish I could teach people the importance of telling the ones you love so them they love them and often. You never know what might happen in the world so why waste a day not telling someone how you feel about them. That might be the one thing they worry about when you are no longer here.
