” My father didn’t tell me how to live. He lived and let me watch him do it.” Being a rancher's child can be both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing because it creates hard work, ethic, integrity, and good strong values. It's a curse because your only socialization is with animals. We can't call in sick to work or take a vacation. It is 24/7 for life, we have to keep on working no matter the circumstances because we don't desert our job. My parents weren't scared to give me responsibility,
and forgiveness. However, the Old Testament also provides evidence of God’s grace and love for his people.

occurred during my 23 years of life have helped shape me into the person that I am today. Starting off, I am 23 years old, Asian American, and the youngest of four children. Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be able to tell you anything that occurred before middle childhood (prenatal, infancy and toddlerhood, and early childhood).

My Best Friends Being raised by my great grandparents was truly a blessing and a curse. In elementary school, I struggled with family issues that ended up with me and my older sister to live with our great grandparents. They were the epitome of role models. I always looked forward to coming home to them and helping them out with their cute daily activities that they had planned for that day.

preserved the poem amongst the most-read works in English for more than half a century. The speaker asks the aged to “not go gentle into the” “night”. Using the “day” as a metaphor for existence and “night” for afterlife, the speaker feels that the old shouldn’t slip away quietly from life or die peacefully. Instead they should “burn and rave” with fiery intensity. Though he admits that “wise” people understand that death is inevitable, and cannot be stopped, he points out that even the most sensible

His parents owned a tavern
TV, I would act like I was playing there with them. So at an early age I knew I wanted to play baseball. Luckily, my dad was also very big into baseball and helped me almost every day. Some of my best memories came when we would practice baseball in the front yard, or even go to the local (missing word) and take batting practice.
