She made storytelling her second job and she loved making children laugh. She sold her food in the market during the day and told stories by night. Sometimes children would walk from miles away just to come and sit down by the fire to listen to my grandmother tell stories about different kinds of people she encountered on her journey. Children and younger adults would come and circle around the fire. My grandmother would stand in the middle of the drummers and everyone focuses their eyes on her.
As children grow up they always look up to someone special in their life, someone that they can trust and is always there for them. This person is someone they admire and hope to be like someday. The person that I’ve described best fits my Grandma. She knows all the right things and is there whenever I need her. My grandma is one of the most important people in my life and I’m so happy that I have her.
My grandmother was a very spontaneous person, she did what she wanted to at the drop of a hat and nobody ever stopped her. She was always very active in many thing like Veterans Auxiliary, making crafts, cooking, cleaning, etc., but always had time for the ones she loved. Living at my grandmothers house was indeed alot of fun because she was so easy going with me. She allowed me to do all the things that I wanted to do and dreamed about. She was always willing to lend me a hand in
I mostly enjoy helping children. I work in a daycare and I love seeing the kids and seeing how excited they are to see me. Seeing the kids grow socially and intelligently brings me joy since I had an impact on their growth. Seeing the kids every week brings me so much joy. These are a few elements that bring me joy.
She loved everyone so much! She would light up every time I would bring one of her great grandchildren into the room. Watching her bond with the babies was just magical. Generous, loyal, strong, kind, funny, faith filled, loving and caring. These are just a few words for all my family here today to remember and love about our beautiful Elizabeth Claire Boudreau murphy, our rock who will be so sorely missed.
My grandmother is a business lady and someday soon I will have a business of my own. I have learned so much from my grandmother; I can take these lessons and have a bright, rich and successful future because of them. I have received so much love from her and I thank her for that each and every day. It’s not a day that goes by that we don’t speak and every day she inspires me to do better and push harder in my studies. I really appreciate everything that she has taught me and I have nothing but the up-most respect for this lady…Selena
Needless to say my grandmother dropped Woodruff off and marched me down to Main Street to see those horses. Like a good grandmother should, she spoiled her grandson to no end. In a way she really shaped who I was to become. Around 12 I wanted to start skateboarding so badly. My mother would not allow it.
All the children loved her the boys would play ball ,and the girls would either do each others hair or make things for their hair out of flowers. She would also see loving mothers inside there cottages cooking a delicious meal for their families. Fathers just coming home from a long hard days of work. As she walked along the streets of Athens she came along the Parthenon home of statue of Athena. Medusa loved to come to the Parthenon to write poems in her journal, draw, and sometimes she would sit and admire how confident, brave, smart,and beautiful Athena was.
She wishes that she will be recalled as a great wife, mother and grandmother. Rosa could not even imagine this being her future and if she could give a piece of advice to her younger self she would say to enjoy all the little things in life because they don 't last forever. Every single moment is precious and at any second it can all be taken away from you, this is why you must appreciate your life. She would also recommend to live to the fullest and love as much as you can because memories never die, although people do. Rosa 's life has gone through many twists and turns.
