Friendship, Family, and "Sacrifice"

Friendship and Family

I want to be the kind of person who puts friendship and family very high on my list of priorities.  I want to drive 4 hours to see Chris and Rachel.  I want to drive 4 hours to see my beautiful sister in law at IWU.  I want to drive 8 hours to see Rob and Kate.  I want to drive 3 hours to see my beautiful sister Lindsay in Chicago.  I want to drive 8 hours to see my new parents.  I want to make memories.  Not just get together and talk.  I want to experience life with people even though they don't live close by.  I want to make it a priority.  I can't see much else that really matters, at the moment.  

I want to sacrifice for people that I care about.  Driving long distances is a sacrifice.  But it's worth it.  and the people that I love are worth it too. 

This is the kind of person I want to be.
