Who would you reach out for?

I was just watching NUMB3RS, and this question was presented at the end towards the person Don was conversing with.

Who would you reach out for? If you were dying? The agent in the show reached for the picture of his family in his helmet. He wanted his family to be with him.

And then it hit me. I don't know who I would reach out for. But unfortunately, I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a family member. Maybe it would be, but I have this unsettling feeling it wouldn't be.

And to be honest I don't know why.

I should want to reach out for family.

But part of me wants there to be someone else there. Someone who would be just as important to me as a family member. A significant other. I have a feeling if I were to ask Bro he would probably say Cece, his GF of three years. And Mom would be Dad, and Dad Mom.

I have no clue what to do about this feeling. I don't even fully understand it.

Guess it'll be one my mind for the next few days. Maybe talking to Kris on Wednesday will help.

Now I'm curious.
Who would you reach out for?

I would reach out for my grandparents and my pups. Don't have many that I am that close too but my grandparents.

BTW I think I accidently erased the last comment you left me and I never got to read it. Can you leave it again?

Hi, Bri...just catching up on your awesome posts!

I am in the same boat as you right now. I should say my mom or other family...or even LC. But...nope! The difference is that I'm ok with that. For now, that's ok. I am independent and free and enjoying life.

And that's good!
