Blood is the strongest bond.
You've heard the cliche, but it's right.
There's no other possible way that I can explain it,
FAMILY COMES FIRST.
I didn't have much growing up.
What I did have was a big, loud, sports-loving, Italian family.
That's all I needed.
I didn't pay attention much in Elementary School,
But my family taught me more than I could ever possibly learn in any classroom.
I didn't have many friends.
But my family brought me love and support to show me that blood runs thicker than water.
I didn't have any confidence.
But my family taught me to not care what people think.
I didn't do well in school, at all.
But my family was still there to support me, and help me.
I didn't have everything I could possibly ask for.
But my family taught me to enjoy the little things, and to cherish the memories.
I didn't have anything to lose at one point.
My "Rock Bottom", before the age of 10.
But my family made me laugh and smile even when I didn't want to.
My family has been with me through everything,
with me on every decision I make in life.
They raised the man I am today.
I only have my family to thank for who I've become.
I love my FAMILY.
