When I heard about the topic for this PLN I was excited because there are so many things that matter to me that I would have fun writing about. My Family is on the top of the list for things that matter to me. Family matters to me so much because they are always there for you and will never desert you like some friends do.
My mom matters to me because she has raised me to do my best and be a caring person to everything around me. My mom does a program at the Dumb Friends League called fostering where our family takes in animals that aren't ready for adoption and we prepare them to live with a family. Ever since I can remember there have always been animals in our home. She has taught me to love all animals and turned me into the person I am today. My mom and I are very much alike with our blond hair. We also have pretty much the same personality impatient and obnoxious. I remember when our family would go camping and roast marsh mellows she would always burn hers because she couldn't wait for them to be done properly. My mom grew up in
My Grandma matters to me because before I was old enough to go to school my parents worked all day and I would stay with my grandma. As a child she would always do what I wanted to do whether it be play baseball or make believe she has always been a good sport. Up to this day when she watches me in the summer while my parents are at work I have even forced her to play Call of Duty with me. She is a second mother to me and has always been there for my when I was sick. My grandma has many sayings that she has repeatedly told me over the years but I think the one I have heard more that any other is “Everything in moderation.” My grandma also matters to me because no matter what happens we will always have a strong bond.
My Dad matters to me because he is always telling me about how important today is in order to have a good future. Even though I always get the same lecture but I also realize that he is trying to help me. He also is like a friend to me because he acts so immature and stupid sometimes but it is all in good fun. One night before I knew how to swim I was diving into a pool with floaters. When the tubes came out from under my arms I sunk to the bottom of the pool, there were so many people splashing at the top no one knew I was down there. My dad spotted me and jumped in the pool with all of his clothes on to save my life. I realize now that his children mean more than the world to him and he would do anything to keep me and my siblings from harm. My dad and I have our ups and downs but he is always going to be there for me whenever I need help.
My Brothers (Matt and Greg) matter to me because they are always fun to be around. As a little kid they would torment me but as a teenager myself I can see how fun it would be to do the kind of things they did to me. Both Matt and Greg are off to college now and to be honest I miss them. If a younger version of me heard that I wouldn’t have to live with Matt and Greg forever he would be so excited for the day they left but I have been relatively sad about there departure.
My Sister Andie matters to me because she is a older female version of me. We both have light skin, blue eyes, and light hair. She is really fun to joke around with because she will always acted shocked and the things I say and give me a slap on the arm for it but its all fun. She will play video games with me and always talk trash before our competitions. She is a great person and I am lucky to have her as a sister.
Although your stuck with your family forever and sometimes they can be a major pain they are the most important thing in my life hands down. Family is the one thing that will always be there and I’m glad to have the one God has blessed me with.
