I did know she did not feel well, but she never had felt well as long as I could remember. She did not try to shelter her many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews she knew we would find out sooner or latter. She used to say "My bones ache, my hands hurt, my back aches, I have trouble walking so I had to get me a cane, and I can't sleep for coughing.
She felt bad that she had not got in touch and even worse when she found out that her grandmother had died two years before. ‘But Dee, why didn’t you tell me?’ ‘I was away; you know what I mean when I say away’. ‘I know’, said Valarie. ‘When I got out I was not myself and grandpa really helped me a lot. But I let him down so much, I just could not stop messing up, but I am clean now.
No one went without, you could be a total stranger but she would give you her last. Loving each other is what our family believed in. We only had one back bone within our family and it was Mrs. Annie Mae. She kept us together during the hardest times. Each holiday, the holiday spirit flooded the house with pure happiness and joy.
But, now I do, and I use this principle almost every day in my life. Before that accident, mother always told me that the appearance doesn’t matter, but I fully understood it only, when learned it on my own practice. So, I fully agree with Anna Quindlen, that there are things, which person should learn by his / her own. I hope that in future I will be a good parent. However, I will always remember that a really good lesson is the one that can be leaned on personal experience.
She said, “I’m a grandmother, my love for you is just like having another daughter.” I realized that she was my biggest supporter and teaching me how to be independent was something she did from the bottom of her heart. She also felt that since my father wasn’t in my life that I deserved to have all the support from family. My mother is a single mom and my grandmother stepped up to the plate and helped where my mom fell short. I will always have the up-most respect for my grandmother because she went over and beyond for me. I felt as though my grandmother did everything out of love and not because she felt obligated to.
There was not a day that went by that she did not guide me in the right direction and teach me a life lesson that still today helps me become a better person. Four vivid points that stand out to me about my grandmother are, make memories, dont stress the small stuff, love unconditionally, and always be dependable are the things that I strongly admire her for teaching me. Since the age of one to the age of twenty-five I can think of hundreds of memories that occured throughout my child hood. During holidays and birthdays she would always stress to me the comment," it is not the size of the gift, Kayla but the memories that are behind it." Now that I am older and have children of my own that comment has never made more sense to me.
I used to be so cold hearted and emotionless and not a care in the world. After my best friend passed away, it opened a door of emotion I never thought I had. Now it’s so easy for me to sympathize with people who have lost loved ones and to console them through their grief. Katherine Peralta is the reason why I shed tears every night when I fall asleep.
I was devastated until I realized that this was a learning experience for the both of us. In reality, I never realized there was an issue with our friendship until it was too late. During her twelfth grade year, she began to change. She was dealing with some things such as depression, which I was blind to. I didn’t know how to help her through this difficult point in her life, which made me feel like a horrible best friend.
She has been my side ever since I was born. Lorena has always been more of a mother to me than my own mom. Of course she never planned on having another kid in the house I was very lucky she welcomed me with her arms wide open. My grandma has been a preschool teacher aid since before I was born. I was really nervous to go to preschool but my grandma was right there by my side to keep me comfortable because she was my preschool teacher aid too.
Was she unfit to be a parent? That rest of the day I notice that my siblings were all gloomy and sad. I didn 't know how to react, I would say that I was grieving a lost of my mother, even when she wasn’t gone. That was the day that I believe that I lost her, there 's not much said about losing your mother besides painful. I didn’t know what will happen next but I know that I wouldn’t ever be like her.
