She was hoping to be "Alice", but even back then the eighth graders got all the good parts. From a young age, she was brought up to understand the importance of hard work and the necessity of saving.
This woman, whom I am referring to happens to be my grandmother. Often she would be the first to the dinner table, and the last to leave. She dedicated her first chapbook of poetry, published in Aprilto this grandmother.
You and Grandpa created a big family rooted on tradition, companionship, faith, and a love that is unwavering and impenetrable. So Grandmother called my mom to say that a bobcat lives on her roof.
But the experience was satisfying anyway because "Mouse" was played by her grade school rival, the same girl who competed with her for the best position on the basketball team and who once made a better pot holder in Home Ec Or maybe they put her on speakerphone so everyone can laugh.
This is a woman that has inspired me to be something great one day and to never give up trying. Her soul had left her body and taken all her sinful heaviness away She taught me how to love hard and be passionate in everything I do, whilst also never forgetting how to slow down and appreciate the little things: the sun on a warm day or a walk with a loved one.
I remember that musty, dark, winding stairwell that led to her second floor apartment in Glendale as vividly as I did the day I established a meaningful relationship with my grandmother. After seeing her hard work and communication skills, she got a marketing job in one of the best marketing and PR agency in Pakistan.
