Read Description

Ok, I am a 21 year old single guy. I work at a low end job selling paint and stuff. My mom and dad got divorced when I was 5. Lived with my mom and older sister my whole life. Mom gives us an amazing life. See dad on weekends occasionally. He remarries. Step-mom and I don't get along great. We try though. Always there supporting me through whatever I do. Get to college. 3 weeks in I meet a girl and we date 2 and a half years. I stay at college (10 hours from home) that whole time. My dad got sick before my Junior year started. He was diagnosed with brain cancer. Mom was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease around same time. I started struggling in school and in my personal life as well. I got too emotionally distant and the girl dumped me around spring break that year. I finished up the year and moved home to be with family. I took a retail job and spend my time hanging with both sides of my family. Dad is currently on hospice, in a wheelchair, incontinent and we have no idea how much time he has. Mom is struggling along. She is on disability and cannot be a nurse anymore.

I didn't write all this to get sympathy. I wrote all this to bring attention to the quote I have posted above this. Everyone on this site has a family. That family may be blood relatives, they may be friends, and they may be the people on the internet you talk to, I don't know. All I am saying is that even the most dysfunctional family, as long as there is love there, is still a family. Please, tell one person that you love how much you appreciate them today before you don't have a chance to do it. I may just be overly sentimental because it is 3am here....but I think that it is very important.

I love you all.

i'm going to admit, Funnyjunk is like a second home for me, almost everyone on this site is like family, even though I don't know their faces or anything about their real life, but this is a website where you get accepted for who you are and you can relate to others (for example the existence of the different image boards with all interests)

I just want to thank everybody for all the laughs and feels and happiness I get from this website, I seriously love everyone on here, you guys make my life whole

I don't particularly love any of you, but I can find room in my heart to tolerate all your imperfections.

I'll tolerate the shit out of them.

I got shivers all over my body.   
   
Sometimes I hate my family, but when I think about it, I wouldn't trade them for the world.
