Anastasia had no family but she still seemed happy. What was the key to her happiness? She accepted that she and her past were not the same thing. She moved on with her life regardless of anything that co... ... middle of paper ... ...get and she would stop at nothing to get it. No matter how uncouth or incredulous people were, she was determined to reach her goal.
All that we could do was make her as comfortable as possible as she went through this. Hoping and praying that a miracle wa... ... middle of paper ... ... see how great my family is as a result of all that they had done for her. I am no longer angry, I know that she would be very grateful to my family for all they did to help. Even though it consumed all of our lives for a long period of time, I would do it again for her in a heartbeat. I am ashamed that I felt at all jealous because my mom needed to be with her my grandma and I should have understood that.
It shows a lot in a person when you know that they will be there for you whenever they are needed. My grandmother is a person whom I will always love and strongly admire. Without her life lessons and wisdom on how to love unconditionally, being dependable, avoid stressing over the small stuff, being a hard worker and be sure to make lots of memories with your family and loved ones, I would not be the person I am today. I hope that one day I can be such an admirable person as she was and teach my own children the things she showed me.
My mom’s ambition to succeed in life has allowed her to grow into a wonderful person full of kindness and knowledge. Ambition is a great virtue to have, and that is one reason why my mother is my role model. My mother is a hard worker, she never... ... middle of paper ... ...mportant person in my life and I know that she will be always there for me with help, her love, and her care. She’s a wonderful person, she admires the beauty of life, and as a result she is always in a good mood. Now, like my mother, I’m a positive thinker, and I am a creative person who believes life is what you create it to be.
But I let him down so much, I just could not stop messing up, but I am clean now. ‘I am just sorry that he did not live long enough to see me clean.’ CHAPTER FOURTEEN Valarie loved her grandparents they had been good and kind, the only thing she could not understand was why they had not stopped Leah and Pete from doing what they did, she just could not understand. Valarie knew that she had to go to her grandfather’s funeral, but did not want to face her parents. She had not seen them since that day she laid in the hospital ... ... middle of paper ... ... ‘I had always wished that I was her daughter, I wished I could have given her what she wanted.’ Dee she lost her mind and all that children talk was in her mind.’ ‘I really don’t know how to say this Valarie, but Aunt Celia had two children.’ ‘What?’ Shouted Valarie, ‘are you sure and how come I don’t know about this. ‘Who are they and where are they?’ ‘This is hard and I don’t know if this is a good idea’ ‘What are you talking about Dee?’ Just keep on talking.’ ‘Well, there was a long pause; Valarie looked Dee straight in her eyes.
And I was really appreciated her giving me the naive and happy childhood and recalls. As long as I have recalls of her, I won’t feel lonely. My grandmother’s departure is the painful thing for me, but I learned that I have to cherish the people surrounding us. My grandmother has already become my recall, and her kitchen becomes the important place to keep our recalls. Many things in the world can’t be expected, so the only thing that we can do is to cherish every person, every moments, and make more good recalls with them.
My friends and family know that I always appreciated and admired her. I never hesitated to include her in my activities or gatherings, knowing full well that she would probably be the most interesting person there. A testament to this was the wide variety of age groups and people she had as friends. Very few people knew mum’s age, and this was for a very good reason. She felt if people knew her age they might just write her off, as simply another older lady, those of us who knew her never made that mistake.
She would not withhold anything embarrassing to protect her image. Honesty was always given to teach us no matter how it made her look, however; she would often give advice that I knew was wrong. She loves me and wants the best for me, but she does not look at what God says is true and right. In all things she did, she did in love, and I know it was. Mother is a woman whom I respect.
Over time, I realized I wasn't being fair to myself. I would have to learn to trust in order to let people back into my life. How else was I to find "the one?" My mother never told me the complications of becoming a woman in this world. She never told me that it's not necessarily important to find "the one" true love in your life.
My grandma is a functional, no-nonsense person. I always knew I could obtain an honest, if not blunt, opinion from her. And yet I always felt her love and concern for my well being and success. Receiving clothing for birthdays and Christmas is never cool when you are young. However, I never minded getting clothes from my grandparents.
