its finals week and I should be studying. But I’m writing this haha. As I’m studying philosophy I started to think about my family. How important they all are. I know I haven’t been the greatest son or brother. At times I’m the worst at replying to them and come off like I don’t care. Yet I catch myself all the time thanking them. It brings me to tears how my family still loves me. My family is the world to me. They can hate me, disown me, or never talk to me (which i hope none of these things happen to me). But I will still love them. There will always be a special place for them in my heart. My heart truly loves them. Thinking about how hard my mom works for me to have an education she could of never afford herself in her teens. Seeing my dad leave everything behind in Korea to start a new life here in America so that me and my sister could have a bright future. To think about how my sister cares about me and truly worries about me. To think about all the pain she has gone through without me ever knowing. All these things brings me to tears and makes me thankful.
Family is important. No matter where you come from family is important. Your family does not stop by blood to though. Its those precious people in your lives that will love you even when your grumpy. I still have a couple of those friends that I consider family.
With this thought I want to adopt alot of kids when i have the mean. To give those children a family. To give them a mother, father, sister, and brother that would love them. No child deserves not to have a family. My family has changed my life. And I hope someday I could do the same. To have kids that would make a family. In the end isn’t thats what matters. Its about your loved ones. I think Kierkegard puts it best “But the person who answers, “In that case I shall still continue to love you.” Love isn’t a emotion but a choice. To continue to care for everyone no matter how hard it is. Isn’t that what Christianity is about.
I just want to end with a Thank You. For my family and everyone who has been a part of it. Thank you. Live life with Thanksgiving.
