The hardest part is leaving my family behind for so long.
People are less self-conscious in the intimacy of family life and during the anxiety of a great sorrow. The dazzling varnish of an extreme politeness is then less in evidence, and the true qualities of the heart regain their proper proportions.
I have family and friends who have been there for me and I would not take a million bucks for their love and support.
It's such a simple meal. It's getting together as a family, sharing oneness, our customs and heritage.
During the time of the draft and all the workouts, it was a little hectic. It came to our family a little fast. It was a bit overwhelming. With the help of my parents, we sat down and didn't let things get over our heads. In the end, it came down to school. Education is the only thing you have for sure. I made the right decision.
When you go through something that traumatic . . . I was the first family member to go to the hospital and just to see her lying there, they were saying she wasn't going to make it. It's been tough just dealing with all that the past couple of weeks and all the stages you go through, the ups and downs, staying all night at the hospital . . .
I want to express my regret to the Reed family, and to the Native American community. He was a stranger to me, but he was a friend and a family member to others.
One family is seeing a son go off to prison, and one family is here to find justice for their loved one who was murdered. It's important to them. Do you think they want to root for the Seahawks?
This happens more often than you would want to know. When it comes to money, family get very, very greedy and they tend to do things like this.
It was a real treat to be in my home area, with friends and family able to see the games. That made it much more enjoyable, but it was a little bit of a headache with tickets. There were always the friends who just thought we got tickets for free. We got two free, and that was it. Usually, I needed eight to 20 each week. Collecting them [from teammates] and sorting them out was tough. Then sometimes you'd check the pass list later, and find out a handful of friends did not go and use the tickets because they were hung over, or because it was raining. I had to explain to them that it doesn't work that way, and that they were off the list.
I have a family to support.
He's a real good friend of mine. I don't know if he and his family got out.
There's nothing I value more than the closeness of friends and family, a smile as I pass someone on the street.
There's a lot of things that go on when you're on tour that cannot be controlled. I'm not even talking about myself, but of course there's sexual activity and drugs, fighting and language; it is certainly not a place to raise a family.
It's different being here in front of friends and family. It's always more comfortable being here (at Auburn). You don't have all those people in the stands. I was just hoping to increase my numbers. I think I did that.
Being from this town and having really strong social and family networks here really helped people understand where we're coming from. People see that this is a good thing for the community. It employs people. It brings money back to local vendors, local caterers, local businesses. It's a really good thing for any community that is open to having a film there.
We anticipate a few more, ... as those that may have resources here, in terms of family, make their way out. We have tried to provide them comfort and reassurance. They have literally been involved with a nightmare. We want to do all we can to help.
He'll be in our prayers, and there will be lots of prayers for the family.
Joe approaches modern agriculture with the attitude and passion that surrounds a successful family farmer.
We work very diligently with families. We have a very good family-to-school connection, lots of respect both ways. And we try to have our parents learn what American public education is all about. What they've experienced in other countries is quite different.
They say Yogi Berra is funny. Well, he has a lovely wife and family, a beautiful home, money in the bank, and he plays golf with millionaires. What's funny about that?
I've devoted a lot of my time and effort during the past few years to developing my advertising copywriting business to the point of where I can support my family and don't have to depend on writing fiction for my income.
I've really written my books for my husband and our family. They've brought us closer together by allowing us to discuss things that were unspoken for so long.
I have always made my own rules, in poetry as in life - though I have tried of late to cooperate more with my family. I do, however, believe that without order or pattern poetry is useless.
But I'll tell you something: We had a big family discussion about it recently, my two sisters and I, and I pointed out that we all have the same genes as our mother and we're all susceptible to becoming alcoholics.
