Extracts from this document...


"Reasons to be cheerful" Write a magazine article with the above title explaining what makes you happy. Imagine being away from loved ones for about five or six years. No one to talk your heart out with, no one to play your favourite games with and, most importantly, no one to be there to love you. But imagine the joy of actually seeing your loved ones again after about five years of being apart. If you, like me, have had this experience, you will know just how great it feels.

The reason: after seeing my dad again, the mistake makes me realise that every time I go to visit my dad, he has become a better person. This, in a way, gives me the satisfaction that after all the help my father has given me, he is also being rewarded in return by becoming an even better person. But whenever I see my dad, there is always one thing that saddens me. This is that after leaving him, I realise that there are many people in school who just don't appreciate the fact that their dad, who they take for granted is actually there to help them. So remember: what you take for granted, other people may dream of having. Think about it. ...read more.
