*Author's note:* my mother was adopted by her aunt and uncle, who I call my grandparents. A few years ago I learned I had a different set of grandparents entirely, that I had to somehow fit into my life. I was also given a wholly new set of aunts, uncles, and cousins. So, this tree will be split into the Mendez and the Lozano trees.

Friends:

    • will disappoint me---and its not the end of the world. People will disappoint me, friends or not. Its part of being human, and its a two-way street. Its not intentional, and they are still my friends.
    • There are people I don't see often, yet it never feels like time has escaped us when its time to meet up again.
    • Holding grudges, though hard to avoid, doesn't help a friendship.

Life:

    • is best when laughed at.
    • is better with people to share it with.
    • is still unfolding, and should be taken one day at a time.
    • Everyone feels lost, fearful, alone, joyous and complete at some time or another.
