Why You Should Never Take Your Family For Granted

Why You Should Never Take Your Family For Granted

They'll always love you and want what's best for you.

There's no doubt about it, family can be a huge part of most people's lives. When there's no one else there, family can be a reason for happiness in your life and will most likely always have a listening ear. Family is something that no one should take for granted, because they are always there to help. Here are reasons you shouldn't take your family for granted.

They're always there to listen

It doesn't matter what time of the day it is, what they're doing or where they are, your family is always willing to help you with whatever you need. Even though friends are always there to listen, there's something about having your family listen to what is going on in your life that is really great. Your family is a great way to talk through your life where they will just sit and listen and support you in all your endeavors.

They'll hang out with you when you're bored

Whether in you're in high school or college, sometimes your friends just can't hang out or you don't feel like going anywhere, but your family is always there to keep you company. Whether you're just hanging around and talking, watching a movie or playing games, hanging out with your family is a lot more fun than you think it is. Take the time to hang out with your family because it can actually be way more fun than going out with your friends.

They'll be honest with you

There's no one else that will be more honest with you than your family. If you're wondering what you should do with your life, they'll be willing to give you their honest opinion on what you should do and helping you figure out what is best for you. Even when you don't want your family to be honest with you and you'd rather them keep their opinions to themselves, you should really value what they think because they have your best interest at heart. Value their input, because they could help you see a new perspective that you didn't see before.

They'll always help you when you need it

No matter what is happening in your life or what you do, your family is always going to be there for you and help you with whatever you need, whenever you need it. Your family wants to see you succeed and they are going to help you do that. Whether it's encouraging you to pursue your dreams or help you fix your car, they are always going to help you out in the best way they can.

Family is an amazing aspect of life. They are there for you whenever you need them and without a doubt love you for who you are. Taking your family for granted and not thinking about all they do for you can easily happen, but just remember that they always have you at the front of their mind. Never take your family for granted because they will always love you.

I Love Being An Aunt

Aunt- a person who can give hugs like a mother, keep secrets like a sister, and share love like a friend.

While home for spring break, I was able to spend some quality time with my four year old niece and my two year old nephew. Both of them boost my mood and remind me just how much I love the joy that kids constantly carry around.

I have been an aunt for almost five years, and it is one of my favorite things about my life. There's a special place in my heart for these kids, and I can't begin to explain how much they mean to me. My niece and I bond in a way that makes my heart so full of joy. She is constantly running to me with her arms wide open for a hug. She always wants to hang out with me, and it makes me feel so important. Not to mention, spoiling her is one of my favorite things to do!

My nephew has such a big personality for his age. He loves when I give him piggy-back rides and hurt myself on purpose. His smile is contagious and his heart is already so so big. Him and my niece are both so friendly and can make me laugh for hours.

I would love to be a mom one day, but being an aunt is something that is truly unique and wonderful. I feel so protective over these two smiling kids. I would do anything to help them have the best life ever. They have amazing parents and grandparents. so I know that they are blessed and happy.

I am truly a proud aunt. I get so excited to show my friends the cute pictures my sister posts of them. I always feel so sad when my niece just can't understand why I have to keep leaving her to go back to college. But she is always there to greet me when I come home after my long, seven hour drive. Her grin and laugh keep me going.

I hope to be an aunt to even more wonderful little kids. Nothing fills my heart up and fulfills my time at home more!

To The People Destined To Marry My Baby Twin Siblings, A Few Words

You really drew lucky cards when you met these people, and I hope that you value them as much as I have.

For seven years of my life, I was a solo act and I was alright with that... until I wasn't. When my brother and sister were born, I knew then that I would spend every single minute of the rest of my life protecting, motivating, and loving these two little people with my everything, and that was what I have done.

Every minute since they were born, I have tried to show them unconditional love and support, offer them guidance, and keep them away from anything that might hurt them. I didn't know that they would end up inspiring me, but they will change the world someday.

For the people out in the world who will someday be lucky enough to call these amazing humans your significant others, I have some advice:

You will never love them as much as I do

I am not threatening you. Don't worry. I am just being honest. I have raised these people to become who they are. I have taught them life lessons, I have been to all of their celebrations for their accomplishments, I have boasted about them to complete strangers, and I have picked them up from some pretty dark places. They have been my motivation their whole lives, and for that, I have an amount of love for them no one will ever be able to match.

We are incredibly close

I have shared some pretty gritty secrets with these people. (We did live together for most of our lives.) The three of us have had spitball contests, alphabet burping contests, sock fights, heated arguments, intense crying sessions, lazy days, family parties, family secrets, and memories that you weren't part of. But, what you have going for you now is that you will be there when we make more. You will get close to us, even if you weren't in all of the past.

They are willing to do anything for the people they love

Throughout our lives, we have been through our share of good and bad. The good was really good, and the bad was really bad. But no matter what, my brother and sister have been dedicated to making sure that the people they love are OK with everything that happens. (They are twins and have literally fought for each other.) So don't ever worry about their loyalty. They protect the people they love with everything in them, and I am extremely proud of that.

They will change your life

You may "know" this already, but you really won't understand until you can watch them changing someone else's life and reflect on yourself. These two people have seriously changed my life. They bring a light into it that no other person I have ever met could possibly do. They have something in their eyes that sparks a revolution in other people. They can motivate, inspire, alter your thinking, and help you see a different side of things you didn't think was possible. They make you a better person, and you will be eternally thankful for that.

You are the luckiest people in the world to marry them

I am not sure if you know it or not, but you are incredibly lucky to be marrying these people. Your entire lives are going to change for the better, and I am glad that someone sees just how special they are. They are two of the best people I have ever met in my entire life, and they deserve the best out there.

You really drew lucky cards when you met these people, and I hope that you value them as much as I have. Let them change your life, they are destined to be great. The amount of pride they will bring into your life is worth any bad days, and you will not find anyone with a bigger heart out there. Don't take them for granted.


A proud big sister
