The De Jong Family

I got to thinking about family. Some of us are fortunate enough to grow up with loving, healthy families. Some of us are not. Luckily, I fall into the former category. There is nothing more important than family. I never fully understood this growing up. I always loved my family, of course, but I didn’t see how important they were. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized how much my family has done for me. I don’t think I would be the person I am today without them. As those who know me, I freakishly adore my family. I always go home on breaks to be with them. That’s more important to me than a destination spring break. Family matters most. Family is the glue that keeps me grounded. Family gets me through the unbearable times, when I just want to give up. Family is the utmost imperative thing in this life.

  1. I agree! Family is very important! Friends will come and go, but family is there forever (it can be positive or negative, depending on your relationship).

  2. Family is so important but sometimes people are not so lucky as you have been. Some find comfort in friends and they become their family. Some find a partner and marry into a family.

  3. Thank you for another magnificent article. Where else could anybody get that type of info in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such info.
