“This for sure. U get older and realize the only ppl in this world that really care about u r ur family. Then u see ur parents getting older and start to understand they wont be around forever.”

“Grand parents. It always seemed like a chore that had to be done. I’d go play with the toys, Sega or watch tv. Now what I would give to sit with my grandpa (I only knew my moms dad) on the porch or in the garage and get to know him as an adult. Watch my grandmas cook and learn.”

11. “Being able to go to school.”

“I remember as a kid always begging to go home after about 10 minutes of going over to my parents’ friend’s house because all they did was sit around and talk and drink and I thought they were the most boring people on earth. Now I go over to my friends place just to sit around and talk and drink and it is a highlight of my week.”
