It’s always good to have a close relationship with your family. In times of need and support, a person would most likely run to their family. Have you ever thought, “What if I did not have a family?” Well, most people do not just sit around and think of what all they have compared to some people. I did not realize how much I should appreciate my family and be thankful for, until I went to a local nursing home, Heartland Nursing Home, for a community service project. It was the most significant thing I have ever done for some people that made me realize I do not need to take things for granted.
