Sappy Fam Lovin's

There have been a lot of controversary and issues in the past while..things that break my heart..things that I never thought people would think or say, things that I never thought that I would think or say. People who have disappointed me in the worst ways, who have shown me their true character and made me bawl because I don't know what to do anymore.

I understand that there are always people like this in the world, and I know that there's not a whole heck of a lot that I can do about it..but it's just so hard to accept. Especially when these people are people who are related to you, who are in your family, who you're bound to for life.

Like it, love it or hate it are.

But sometimes, even when you're at odds with certain family..and you just don't know what to do anymore..and you've given up hope..other family steps up their game and pulls up the slack when you least expect it.

They restore your faith that good people exist.

They help you out when you're in a bind and can't rely or trust anyone else.

They dole out hugs and a listening ear like it's nobody's biznaz.

And they make you smile..just because they're them.

At a time when I'm so frustrated and upset..when there is so much going on and I'm stressed and have a million things on my plate. When I'm so worried that everything is going wrong and I just don't know what to do anymore...they're there. Rounding up troops. Sending in backup. Changing their plans. Making dinner, making coffee, making smiles. Making sure that everyone keeps on trucking and doing the best job possible.

Sometimes I'm amazed at the gems I've been lucky enough to uncover in certain family. Feels like I've won a million bucks.

Well, not that I know what that feels like. But I'm not so opposed to finding out..should some kind, wealthy, annonymous donor like to be a part of that social experiment ;)
