A couple of weeks ago, the fifth grade had grandparents day. My mom and dad were able to go eat lunch with Anna Grace and they had a program where each child read a story that they wrote about their grandparents. I did not read Anna Grace's before that day and my mom called and said that Anna Grace's was the best by far. Well, I thought she was just being a typical grandmother, but after I read it I realized she was probably right. I read it aloud to Clint and it brought tears to my eyes. Here is a copy of her story...
I know it is long, but it is precious. This is copied straight from her Word document.
Hey,do you want to know why my grandparents are the best in the world? Their names are Papaw,Mimi,Pawpaw,Nana. They’re the best because they treat me with respect. I hope they think that too and they love me with all their hearts and I know they always will. Now if you want to know the best thing about my grandparents well you better listen up. They are Christian and that’s the best thing about them.
My Mimi and Papaw live in Cohutta,Georgia. When I go to their house they treat me with respect. Sometimes when I spend time with my Papaw we go fishing. It’s really fun and I spend time with my Mimi in the kitchen cooking which is her favorite thing to do. Whenever I have a secret they can always keep it even if it’s really big. Every Sunday I go to their house to have a delicious lunch and every year I enjoy going to the family decoration reunion with my Mimi and Papaw. If I needed any advice this is what my Mimi would say “Live a Christian life and get an education.” One thing I know that my grandparents believe is I can do anything and be anything I want to be. Now I bet you’re starting to believe me about my grandparents being the best.
My Pawpaw and Nana definitely are the best pair of grandparents in the world because they love me with all their hearts. I can tell when they hug and kiss me everytime I see them. When I go to their house we sometimes play Hide-n-go-seek and we color and those are the things my grandparents played when they were young. Every year go to their house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My Nana makes the best turkey. When we go to their house for Christmas I get the best presents too and if I needed advice this is what my Nana would say “Live the golden rule.” Sometimes when I go to their house they’ll give me things I need and more. My grandparents are starting to sound pretty great,aren’t they?
I think that this has to be one of the best reasons about my grandparents. They are Chrstian. Sometimes when I go to my grandparents house they take em to their church. The people there are very nice and they encourage me to be a Christian and I hope to be one someday. My grandparents have been through some hard times because my Pawpaw,Mimi,and Papaw have all had cancer and my Nana had Chrones disease. One thing I know they do is pray for me and I just want them to know that I appreciate it and I’m praying for them too. Someday I hope to see them in Heaven.
Finally here is the last but best reason of all. They make me smile. When they come in the room they make me laugh and when I’m sad they tell me stories that make me feel better. On my birthday they give me gifts that I really wanted and they take me to a resteraunt of my choice. Sometimes they’ll take me to special places or they’ll let me spend time with them like when my Nana and Pawpaw took me and my family to Disney World and my Mimi and Papaw take me to Lake Whinnie every summet. Now I hope I convinced you that my grandparents are the best in the world.
So what do you think about my grandparents now? I bet you’re starting to believe me about my grandparents being the best. Ok now out of all the reasons that my grandparents are the best I would have to choose the one about my grandparents making me smile. I absolutely had to pick that one because they always make me smile.I can’t help it. I hope you believe me now and if you don’t well I’ll always think my grandparents are the best in the world.
