My recent spring vacation had consisted of taking care of Helena as a mother’s helper and I had spent several weekends changing diapers, mixing formula, and watching over her brothers and sisters. After she died, I became overwhelmed with all these ideas of how she would never again giggle at my silly faces, never learn to ride a bike, let alone walk, and never take part in any childlike adventures. This unforeseeable tragedy changed my life forever.
Love leads to hardship and lies which is proven by Gatsby losing his life to Daisy who didn 't attend his funeral. Nick tried to call Daisy and tell her that Gatsby’s funeral was this afternoon, but she ran away with Tom. “But she and Tom had gone away early that afternoon, and taken baggage with them”(Nick 127). Gatsby didn’t get to say his goodbye to Daisy and lost his life for her. This shows the hardship that Gatsby had even when he died, due to the fact that Daisy didn’t come to his funeral.
From going through the recent death of my grandmother, I can assure from personal experience that sometimes the burden placed on the caregiver can be more strenuous than the battle that the loved one is fighting. The caregivers are the ones that struggle with trying to understand why this is happening to someone they love so much. I know my mother and I sat for hours in the hospital listening to how content and happy my grandmother sounded and we questioned night after night why was this her time to be fading away from us. We would stay up all night to make sure that nothing would go wrong.
Throughout Ponyboy’s years, he has lost multiple people who took a piece of his heart to the grave with them. After Pony’s parents had passed on, he never had the opportunity to feel the love and admiration of his parents during difficult times. In addition to losing his parents, he had lost two close friends who replaced the role of parents and allowed Ponyboy to have someone to come to for help. “But I knew that was what he wanted, even as the lot echoed with the cracks of shots, even as I begged silently--- Please, not him... not him and Johnny both ---I knew he would be dead, because Dally Winston wanted to be dead and he always got what he wanted.”
Mayzie learns that fame and fortune is not everything and that family and friends are important in our lives. The same can be said about God. All of these material things that we think we need to survive we really do not need because nothing replaces God, family, and friends. We are all children of God and he is who we put our faith in to help guide us along the way.
After a busy day of school and work I was slightly upset at Matt because I did not receive a call from him that night. I assured myself if when I got home he would call me, I was wrong. I got a call from his younger sister instead, she couldn't form words and I could hear her weep through the phone. “Matthew shot himself”, were the words I could make out of from the sobbing and loud out cries in the
Everyone the next day was gone just as his wife. He told Angelica that he was trying to take it down but he couldn't because he didn't want to leave his wife behind. The teens were telling him he has to let her go so no one else would die. He was having a hard time making a decision. He was still thinking and Angelica said to him" I know how it feels like losing a family member, I lost my dad when I was six years old and I had such a hard time letting him go too".
and I walked by the dog park and I saw these beautiful dogs running and playing. When I saw them the strong feeling of emptiness went away and I knew what I had to do. So I ran home as fast as I could and begged to have a dog finally once I told them I would take care of it my parents finally agreed. So a long three months went by not seeing no dog in sight.
Though there are many other things I have gotten to do and learn through choir, I really really want to continue. It has been a major part of my life for I don’t know how long and I can’t imagine what my life would be like without it. Ever since my parents split up there have been money trouble, because of that my family has always had to think about and watch what they spent an extra curricular activities my siblings and I did. As we grew older my father took what we were doing more seriously.
My great-grandmother used to say, “Live your life in such a way that when you die, even the Postman will miss you.” I never thoroughly understood those words until Jimmy Fesmire, a prominent figure and deacon in my church, passed away in a car accident after attending a Sunday morning service on a clear, sunny day in May last year. His passing was untimely and truly unfair, but even after death, he continued to impact lives. The number of people he had helped with a servant’s heart and cheerful mind was innumerable. Jimmy Fesmire is the only individual I know whose life mirrored my great-grandmother’s quote.
Despite numerous people, including myself, blaming themselves and contemplating feasible actions that could have ensured his safety that night, we were conscious of the fact he would never return. Nevertheless, as we all grieved and made plans for his resting, a sense of his spirit was always present. The following Monday, after the accident, our entire school participated in a dedication ceremony for Lester. Balloons with notes filled the air as we prayed for one another and his family as well. Outside of school, his closest friends gathered in fellowship as we comforted his family and remembered Lester.
What it means to be a Finch People ask all the time what it means to be a Finch. Being a Finch to me means one is being a hard worker, family oriented, and living one’s life to glorify God. I love being in my family because my family has shaped me into who I am today.
“When Jimmy was first getting chemotherapy for cancer and could not go home, the children felt sad because they missed their father. Every Sunday, we would all go see him and watch the Patriots’ games. He loved teaching his children that they could do whatever they desired and to never give up on their dreams no matter how tough it gets,” Roda said in an interview with the Boston Globe after the passing of her husband in 2080. Jimmy said something that Leslie never forgot. Leslie’s lifelong friend, Emma Pacheco said that Jimmy told her, “When I die, I will be okay.
If he is even considering dating anyone, then Willis isn 't sharing what is going on right now. After being engaged and calling it quits, Jeremiah seems to be waiting to jump into any new relationship. On last week 's episode of The Willis Family, they also shared about how their house burned down and the family was living in a rental house. They lost a lot of things that were important to them including photos and all of their instruments. The Willis family is very thankful that nobody was injured considering that they know things could have been a lot worse.
It was a normal spring day for California during the drought, unbearably hot. Although my family was inside Saint Michael’s Church, attending Sunday Mass, we could still feel the heat. I couldn’t even tell if the air conditioner. The church looked beautiful as the sun glowed through the stain glass windows, but it felt like an oven in there. Many women had brought hand fans and were fanning themselves, trying to cool off.
