881 Words4 Pages

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. Since birth the one person that was always by my side except for my family was my Grandma. Once my parents needed to go back to work she was there everyday to watch over me. She took me with her every where she went and was proud to show me off and that she had such a wonderful grandson.

Our dog was a yellow lab and very energetic. She would sleep in the living room, but once she heard a car pull in and saw my Grandma come out of that car she jumped in the window and ran around and couldn’t wait till she came in. Her excitement was only half of what I had when she would show up. Each year we spend every holiday together and the one I find the most pleasurable and can never forget is our tradition we have for Christmas. She would come on Christmas Eve and have dinner and we would have a grand night and she would stay over and the next morning we would all wake up early and have a wonderful Christmas day together. As kids my brother and I would go to the backyard and race and she was always the one there cheering for each of us to win, although one was always the loser. She played a fantastic role in my childhood and an even spectacular one as I’ve grown into the young adult I am today. Much of the wisdom and knowledge I have today I owe great thanks to she. If it wasn’t for all the inspiring, insightful books I would never know such a greater world. Our many traditions still lay intact, but we have set any new ones in the recent years. Every Sunday she comes over to watch the sport games with us and then we all get together and create a fantastic mouth watering dinner. She was an unbelievable cook in her day and now I have learned many of her secrets and hope my cooking is
