As I'm 'growing up' (yikes am I really 20!?) I'm realizing how much cooler it is to hang out with my dad and mum and my family than to do my own thing. Not that I even 'go out' that much. Still. As my mom says, 'Friends will come and go.' But God puts you in a family for a reason. When you're close with your family, you'll also find and be the right kind of friend. But when you don't care about family, even the kind of friends you make out there won't be the kind who'd stand by you when the going gets tough.
Now it just seems to me how clear and simple it is. Why couldn't I see it before?
