Life: It is about the gift not the package it comes in. ~Dennis P. Costea, Jr.

Life is  funny.  I'm enjoying mine and very grateful for it. I have an array of friends and family. Wonderful people who would help me at any moment if I needed it.

This week my aunt died. I asked a family member for a favor and they turned me down. I was furious and started swearing and yelling because I was so upset at their selfishness. It's frustrating to grow up with parents who give a their all to their children to support them and then see their brothers and sisters only focus on themselves.

My boyfriend and I had a long talk later that night about people who are Christian, preach their faith and religious views  to other people but don't really commit to constantly asking the question : What would Jesus do?, in everyday situations.  I never really thought about it. I guess I thought being aware that I am wrong with some actions that I take toward people was justifying my poor decisions.  This conversation made me realize that I have to keep working on the way I react to things. Really pray for guidance and peace so I can react with less anger and more love, especially, towards my family.

There is that old saying, you can pick your friends but you can't pick your family. I love my family I really do but I need to start helping them more and be more kind to each of them. My goal is to show  them love even when they drive me crazy!!! :)
