Feeling loved

I believe in relationships. I have relationships with my parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and my sister. I have relationships with different people and they’re all special to me. I definitely have a relationship with God. That’s the strongest relationship I have. Relationships are very important; they help the world go round. They help us get through the day. I see my girlfriend almost everyday and I love seeing her beautiful face because every time I see it I just smile. I wake up in the morning thinking about certain people and what I can say to them and if I’ll see them during the day. Relationships are a part of our everyday life.

My dad and I have a strong relationship with each other. We have so many memories together. I love it when he comes to my athletic events. I feel like he’s proud of me. We always make jokes about each other and beat up on each other and play around. It’s fun because he’s like a big kid sometimes. My dad is one of my heroes.

I also have a really strong relationship with my mother. She’s one of the nicest people ever. We always have fun together, whether it is shopping for new clothes for school or going grocery shopping for food. I always have a good time with her. She has a very strong relationship with God and she’s always telling me to pray and to think about God in certain situations. I wish I was as strong a Christian as she is. She is a loving mother who would do anything for me. I love her and would do anything for her.

Another relationship I have is with God. He is amazing, He loves, and He is forgiving. I’m a Christian and I believe the relationship god had for us is so amazing that he sacrificed his own son to save us from our sins forever. I think that is just incredible and breath-taking and overwhelming. He has done so much for me. He gave me loving parents and a loving family to come home to after a bad day. He has blessed me to be a healthy, strong, young man and to put Him in front of everything else, then to put others in front of me. I haven’t been to church in a couple of weeks because of work every Sunday, and I feel that I need to read the bible more and pray more to become closer and regain some of the relationship back from all the time I haven’t been to church.

Relationships are very important. Everyone has a relationship with someone and should try not to mess that up because it could be a big loss when they don’t even know it. I just believe that relationships make me feel loved because we’re constantly communicating with other people and getting to know one another and interacting.
