You often come across the question: Who are the most important people in your life? The first word that immediately comes to my mind: family. My mother, my father, my sisters, my grandparents, and my nephews. These are the people that I know for a fact will be by my side when I need them the most, no matter what happens.
My parents are two of the most hard working people I know. They are the ones that have given me everything from the 1st day I was born. From money to go out with friends to shelter, food, clothes, and heath; they have always been there for me. If I am at the hospital, laying in the bed sick, I know for a fact that they are both there waiting for me, making sure everything turns out alright. They give up so much for me sometimes, and I couldn’t be more thankful for that.
My grandma and I go way back, too. She has gone through so much in her life, and for that she is so strong. I’ve been there with her through all of it: excitement, happiness, and sadness. Not only have I been for her, but she has been there for me as well. Back in the day, after she picked me up from school she would always buy me either a snowcone or an ice cream. She would also take me to the mall and have me ride the horses. Together we talked, laughed, and cried that we grew to have a really strong relationship. Even though she’s usually traveling from El Salvador to Florida, I see her about once a year. Whenever she comes around, I really enjoy spending some time with her.
I also look up to my 3 sisters. They are all older than me, with the highest difference of about 15 years. The 3 of them are my personal role models that I look up to. I’ve seen them go through so much throughout the years. For example, they have made a lot of mistakes and went through rough patches in life. Watching them go trough that has taught me a lot and it makes me be a stronger person. I know I can always go to these 3 girls if I need to talk about anything. Whenever I tell them about problems I’m going through, they tell me a similar stories of theirs, and together we try to find a solution. They are always very helpful and understanding of many situations I go through.
In conclusion, my family is the greatest thing I have ever had. I am so thankful to have them in my life, and I am not sure where I would be without them. We all have our ups and our downs, but no matter what, we know that we all love each other. I am truely blessed to have such a great family.
