MY BEAUTIFUL GRANDMOTHER
Created By: E ELIZABETH

WHEN I WAS FIFTEEN MY MOTHER WENT BACK TO WORK. MY GRANDMOTHER HAD JUSST RETIRED FROM THE ARMY RESERVE IN BIRMINGHAM, AL. OF COURSE, I WAS TOO OLD FOR A BABY SITTER BUT MY PARENTS FELT LIKE SOMEONE NEEDED TO BE AT HOME WHEN I GOT OFF THE BUS EVERY AFTERMOON. SO GRANDMOTHER RENTED AN APARTMENT AT PARK VILLA APARTMENTS IN JACKSON. EVERY AFTERNOON WHEN I GOT OFF THAT BUS SHE WSS THERE TO GREET ME AT THE DOOR. SHE HAD SPENT ALL HER TIME DURING THE DAY MAKING HATS, AFGHANS, Y0U NAME IT SHE DID IT FOR US. WHAT WE DID NOT RECEIVE SHE DONATED TO BAZAARS. I FINALLY ASK HER ONE DAY TO SHOW ME HOW TO CROCHET AND SHE ATTEMPTED TO SHNOW ME. HOWEVER, I AM AMBIDEXTEROUS AND ANYBODY THAT IS READING THIS AND HAS THIS PROBLEM- Y0U HAVE MY SYMPATHY. IT IS VERY HARD TO TEACH SOMEBODYY HOW TO CROCHET THAT USES BOTH HANDS EQUALLY WELL. I COULD NOT CATCH ON BECAUSE SHE CROCHETED SO FAST, BUT I FINALLY JUST WENT TO MY ROOM AND PRACTICED AND I GOT IT RIGIHT. SO ANYBODY OUT THERE THAT IS AMBIDEXTEROUS, PLEASE PLEASE DO NOPT GIVE UP. KEEP TRYING !! EVERY TIME I TALK ABOUT MY GRANDMOTHER IT STILLS BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES. SHE WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PART OF MY FAMILY. IF IT HAD NOT BEEN FOR TAKIING UP TIME AND LETTING ME STAY WITH HER I MIGHT HAVE GONE DOWN THE ROAD SOME OF MY PEERS DID AND TAKEN DRUGS, ETC. THANK Y0U GRANDMOTHER FOR COMING H0ME TO STAY WITH ME ANDD TEACHING ME HOW TO CROCHET. I LOVE Y0U, GRANDMOTHER, ELIZABETH
