The power of family 


You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. 




One’s family is who they can rely on for all their needs. I know that I can rely on my family whenever I need anything. Whenever i come home from a long, exhausting and cold day on the water i know that they will be there to make me some warm food and make sure I have everything i need. When I was younger I had idiopathic neutropenia which means I had almost no white blood cells and therefore almost no ability to fight disease and none of the fancy doctors knew why. For 3 years of my life they supported me and kept me away from dirty places that could get me sick. Thanks to that i was able to stay mostly healthy and it did not have a major impact on my life. But when i did get sick it was dreadful i would spend weeks and weeks home from school and they stuck with it taking all that time out of their busy schedules to take care of me and do everything they can to make me more comfortable and get me healthy. Fortunately i do not have this anymore but if it wasn’t for them this could of done irresponsible damage to me. Family are the people that make sure you get to school, have food to eat. They are the people that care for you when you are sick. For family it Is their job to care for you and to make sure you have everything you need.

During our trip to Belknap, it was the most unexpected dreaded activity's that turned out to be the most useful and enjoyable. The sailing which we all looked forward to turned out to be an hour of wasted time out in the burning sun with no wind and unenjoyable counselors. While the leadership activities which I remember Luke begging to have it first so we could get it over with turned out to.  Although the leadership exercises we did were interesting the adults at Belknap were so controlling it made it hard to feel like leaders, if they made a few simple adjustments everyone time at Belknap would have been a lot better.
