As A Child I Learned


As a child I learned that family is the most important thing.
To keep the family together no matter what it takes!
If it would mean to swallow one's pride, then that is what
should and will be done, as long as it got the job done.
For family is all that we will ever have!
Pride, money, who's right or wrong should never
get between  the love a family will always have.
As a child I learned that family is the most important thing in life!
For it is your family and their love you will always have!
Be it through good times as well as any bad times, it will be
your family that will be there for you each and every time!
As a child I thought as a child, having no worries, always
feeling carefree, as if I had the whole world right at my feet!
But as I have grown to be an adult with a child of my very own
I've learned that life is never an easy road to live by,
for there are so many different twist and turns.
It is by our choose what we make of our lives, but what
ever the choices we do make should always lead right back
to our family's love, which will always be there!
Family is every thing! Family means togetherness!
Family is not about pride or who is right and who is wrong each
and every time. Family is about Love and being Loved in return.
It is about working together and never against each other.
To always find a way to get through any kind of disagreement,
no matter what it takes to get the job done!
As a child as well as an adult I have learned to forgive
is also the way to be forgiven! For family is everything to me!
No pride or amount of money will and can ever put a price
on how much family values and their love means to me.
For family and their love is and will always be the only
thing we will ever have! So we should learn to love,
to forgive and to let go of our past mistakes!
To learn to move on, let go of the past, so that
our family and the love that we have may go on living
forever through us and continue through our children!
For our children are the future of our family!
This I believe we have all learned from the two most
loving and giving people who were the back bone of
this family that we are so very proud to be apart of!
Because of the love of Louis and Alice Souza,
we as a family must go on together and never go on apart.
For I know they would want and wish that each one of us will
continue on with the sharing of Our Families Unconditional Love!
For it is out of our loss we have gained Love once again!
This was written in the loving memory of
James Souza, beloved Uncle and to
Louis and Alice Souza beloved Grandparents.
