Family has always been an important thing to me since I was little. I have always loved going to my grandma and grandpa’s house to see my other cousins on a holiday. I loved finding new games to play that our little minds would make-up. When you’re a kid you really don’t understand too much about life but you just go day by day as happy as you can be. When you start getting older you realize that family is really important but as you grow up, you’re not always going to have the chance to see all of your family like you used to. People take life and their families for granted and don’t appreciate everything they do for them. You have to learn that you need to cherish every moment with your family as much as possible because one day they might not all be there. It’s going to hurt really bad when you lose one of your family members and once you experience that, you never take them for granted again. Family plays a very important role in our lives and we need them to be able to be successful and do great things in our life because they’re the ones that motivate us to strive and do better.
