An honest days work will make you appreciate the little rewards in life. I remember riding horses all day as a kid, and being so tired I couldn't hardly walk. I have my father to thank for teaching me how to work, and making me finish my work for the day no matter how tired I was. I now know that he did that for me not to punish me, but to ensure that I would be a successful adult. School taught me how to learn, but I have my parents to thank for teaching me to work for my dreams, and appreciate what I have in life. I have worked hard for each and every thing in my life. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I think that over time people grow in different directions, and friendships fade for better or for worse. One might say well it is never better to lose a friend, but it seems that often times friends get to the point where they have grown apart in so many ways. It becomes more of a chore to be friends rather than something that they enjoy. It isn't so much that the person is no longer claimed as a friend, but the need to stay in touch is lost because lack of interest in what one or the other is doing is gone, or absent. I feel like friendships in today's world are based on what you have or what you should have rather than who people really are.
