A 13 year old’s tribute to his Grandma

My grandma is very special to me. She is always cleaning but whenever I come over, she usually has time to talk. Often my grandma has shown her love and caring nature by focusing on other people. Whenever asked about how she is feeling, she will often talk about others’s needs instead of her own. She is always sending get-well cards to people although she has had bone cancer herself for nine years.

She is always sending get-well cards to people although she has had bone cancer herself for nine years.

Grandma and Grandpa emigrated from Canada by boat. Although they did not know any English, they began farming and eventually had six children.

Aunty Rita, the oldest child, is mentally challenged and I think that is where Grandma got her love for disabled people. Grandma and Grandpa have been married for fifty-one years.

At first, Grandma sewed her children’s clothes but later enjoyed picking up items at cheap shops. Grandma also kept her own garden from which she canned many different kinds of fruits and vegetables. Now Grandma knits and tries to use up every scrap and piece of fabric.

Today Grandma is eighty and because of cancer, her back is very bent. She is often in pain and wishes to go to heaven to be with Jesus. I am so glad I have experienced her love and care for almost thirteen years.
