We as a family will always strive to finish the work that great grand mom tried to accomplish which is making the world a better place to live. I remember one time when Alice and I we were sitting at the stairs and we were just having a little chat about life and what life is about and what it meant to me. She told me that “Life has a way of kicking us when we’re down and just when you think you can’t fall any lower, you get kicked again.

Most importantly, through my grandmother’s love of knowing and discovering, she showed me the importance of the mind and the power it gives to us. I am also inspired by my grandmother’s love for volunteering and bringing happiness to the unfortunate. When I was four years old my grandmother first took me to Wrentham Developmental Center to spend time with mentally and physically disabled residents. She introduced me to so many people that have helped shaped who I am. The resident my grandmother spent the most time with was a woman wheel chair bound with cerebral palsy named Nancy.

She would help my mom with all the day to day things that my dad would sometimes stop by and do with me. Anything that I needed, she was willing to do or get, just like my mom and my dad would do before he was killed.
I love hearing about my clients families and learning all the different things about them as service users enjoys hearing tales about my 2 boys. I always try to find a common interest with my clients so that they feel more confident and relaxed when we are having a conversation I feel if they are relaxed and smiling they become more accepting of care as some service users struggle with the aspects of care. I have a service user who is partially blind and deaf and loves hearing tales about my family and what we have been up to at the weekend as she is housebound so unable to go out anymore so she loves hearing stories of what we do. Sometimes she will tell me of places she went to when she was younger in the Lake District and describes what it was like, I then try and go to visit these places with my children so that I can describe it to her and hope she can relive the memories through what I am telling her. I try to take
One reason for this is the article says “His political duties often forced him to be away but, he wrote hundreds of letters sharing news, giving advice, and occasionally scolding.” Meaning, even after his long days of work he still managed to find time for his two daughters. Another reason why I think this was a good article is it says “He longed to be among his children and grandchildren, where I know nothing but love and delight.” I think that this meant that if he didn’t have political duties he needed to fulfill, he would have spent his whole life with his family being happy. One last reason is the article says “He kept track of their replies and once threatened to ‘send the sheriff’ after Ellen because she owed him so many letters.” This meant that

All in all education should be something people should take advantage of. The value of family was very important to Puritans in the 1600’s. I have this value because I hold my family very near to my heart. For example I visit my eighty-four year old grandmother everyday after school and get her groceries or take her places she needs to go. I also help out my parents that both work by taking care of the house and making dinner so they can relax when they get home from work.
I can remember growing up in a single-parent home. It was just my mom and I, nevertheless, over all my childhood years was good. My mom worked and she always made sure I had everything I needed and some of the things I wanted. Growing up with just my mom has made me more mature because I had to do some things for myself. For example, when I got home from school, mom would still be at work, therefore, I was in control of when to do my homework.
Most things do not happen the way we expected and, I did not start college a year after high school. Instead I was married with a baby on the way. I still wanted to return to school but, did not know how I could. I was not sure if I could afford it or, with the baby on the way, that I would have time. Once I had my son, I had to start work to afford all the things a baby requires.
