My name is Keith Downing and I’m talking about my grandmother today. My grandmother and I have a distant, but love attitude toward each other. The two of us never really spent time together, but when we did we enjoyed the time that we spent.
One time my grandmother woke me up at about 7 A.M. on a Saturday morning. This was strange because she never wakes me up. She told me to get dressed and get in the shower and I had about 15 minutes to do so. When I got dressed she took me out for breakfast at Denny’s and we actually talked for about an hour or so. When we made it home I thanked her and went back to sleep.
This story may not seem special, but it is because my grandmother and I rarely spend time together. I enjoy that memory of her because I know once she passes away I’ll look back on that and it’ll bring me joy.
