I have always enjoyed helping others that need help, for the past ten years I have worked in nursing homes because I enjoy making others feel wanted and important. I feel that if I can just make one person happy during the day then I did what I was supposed to do. I know working at the nursing homes was my job but it was more than that to me I was happy to go to work everyday. I felt like it was a second family to me. My husband was deployed and I had to take care of my deaf and mute father in law, at first I wasn't sure how I would communicate with him but by the end of my husband's deployment we were so close.
