Note: At 3 years old we say to our parents " I love you". At 10 it's "yeah whatever". At 16 It's "It's not fair and you just don't know ". At 18 it's "I just wanna leave this house". At 25 it's " Ya'll were right, you know it"? At 30 it's " I want to come to your house and see ya'll". At 50 it's " I don't want to lose ya'll". At 70 it's "I'd give up anything I owned for ya'll to be here with me again, some more".
You don't know who you have until you've lost them.
