Lets think about how important it is to be around our family. I have read several questions in Q&A about childhood and the closeness our families are/ were to us.
When my husband was discharged from the Navy we decided not to return to the home state but to go our own route. I see now in my children, that a week once a year was not enough to instill love and respect for the family that lived 3 states away.I would never go the same route again.
How important do you think it is to live near your immediate family??????--
