Question of the Day: Who do you live with?

Right now, I live with my father. Although, I am not sure until I’d get to live with him as my sister’s petition of him is already underway.

So, I am making the most out of the time we have together. Dine out and watch movies as much as my budget would allow. Go somewhere we haven’t been, if my free time would permit it.

He is one of my best friends in the world. Also, the most supportive father. He will actually run to the nearest grocery store to buy things I need in the kitchen that I, typical me, forgot to buy earlier that day when we went grocery shopping.

I am happy that someday soon he and my mother will be physically together again and he’d get to see his grandchildren. But I am also sad that he might leave me soon. Bittersweet. Mixed feelings.

I will surely miss the times we spent together. Having fun. Arguing. Or simply watching TV together.

He is indeed the pillar in my life.

Loving. Supportive. Solid.

Question of the Day: What three words describe your family?

My family has always been the one unit I always run to whenever I have problems.  I am not saying that every member of my family knows all of my problems as that would be weird.  But at least one of them knows certain problems while the others know the other problems.

After all, I can’t tell my parents everything.  Some issues (specially boy problems) I can only share with my sisters while others are best discussed with my parents.

And despite the fact that we are not all physically together we find ways to talk to each other everyday, which is easier these days thanks to technology.  Me and my sisters taught our parents to use Whatsapp and Tango so that we can be with each other with just a few key strokes.  Distance is no longer an excuse not to make your family feel special.  My family tries to do this for each other on a daily basis.

Thus, I do not know what I would do without my family.  I have always either ran to them for help or helped them when I can.

I am not saying that my family is perfect.  No family is but they are perfect for me.  I cannot think of any other family I’d rather have.  And the three words I would use to describe my family are not elaborate.  They are the simplest, most heartfelt adjectives I could come up with:

Loving – there is nothing I can do that will make them love me less and there is nothing they can do that will make me love them less.

Supportive – I can always count on one and all of them for help.

Solid – they are my lifeline.  The rock I lean on when I am tired.  The wall I lean against when I am exhausted from standing on my own.

My family is my life and soul.  And part of the reason why I am still alive.

They share my passions and dreams.  They know my weaknesses and strengths.  They’ve seen and heard me cry.  They’ve celebrated my triumphs with me.  They grieved with me when I got my heart broken.

But, most of all, they help me live and be alive.  And for that, I will always look to them when my tunnel appears to be at its darkest.
