I can still hear her say, “…go to
Mom would do anything in her power to help someone if they needed help. We had been traveling down the road and saw someone who needed help and mom would always stop to see if they needed anything. Most of the time it was either to use a cell phone or some cash. Mom did what she could and gave what she had. My grandparents would do the same thing. My family always try to put others before themselves. Doing what they could to pay it forward and never getting anything in return. However, it always made me proud to see them doing things for other people. They always try to set the best example for me. Now it is my turn to do that with my daughter.
Michigan Hero My great grandma has always been nice to me. No matter how sick she gets, she never stops doing things for other people. Every morning people come over for breakfast at her house. My great grandma cooks all the food for them. She is always going to church or
Caring for my grandma, was a responsibility that came with an experience. I had to learn from skilled professionals and nurses, how to properly care for an elderly. I learned to manage her vitamin and nutritional intake; made sure she was eating plenty of vegetables, fruit, probiotics, and protein. Also, making sure that she managed her stress and had the correct amount of sleep.
Dear aunt bessie, one million dollars you gave me will be used for the greater good of this nation. Nobody is doing good besides the rich. Children are working in factories, the women have no rights, people are being sold bad food, and others are tearing down forest destroying earth. It's just terrible, and this is where I will put my one million dollars.

Certain events or people shape you into the person you are today. However, one person (or event) impacts your morals, attitude, personality, and decisions the most. My grandma is a catalyst who created the person I am currently. When I was younger, I did not receive full attention from my parents.
"Don't be mad now. C'mon guys, get together, don't be so mad now." The classic line for the arranged family group photos. The line my cousins and I always giggle about. The words that constantly slide out of my Grandma Di's lips. This line, always makes me "not be mad now". There are many people in my life whose lives have played a role in my own. One person in particular who I would like to thank for their role in my life is Dianne Elton or as I refer to, Grandma Di. I'd like to thank my Grandma Di for showing me joy through her joy for the arts, her joy of her family, and for her joy of life.

The grandma I know is very different then the grandma of my older brothers, my cousins, and my parents. My grandma had the coolest house with the most awesome toys ever. We would run into her house after a long car ride and jump into her arms for a hug and kiss and then take over the small living room with all the toys that were just for us. The grandma of my older brothers is more of a mother figure who cooked lots of goodies and chased them around the farm. I never knew my grandma as a farmer, but it was in her blood. The way she cooked and worked in her garden were the signs of a true farmer that has had years of
Ever since I was a little girl I looked up to my granny. She helped raise me and my brother when my parents had to work. To this day she has made me realize what it is like to be loved and supported. Whenever I need her I know she is only a phone call away. In the future,
Throughout my eighteen years on this Earth I can honestly say there isn't one person or experience that have made me the person I am. If I said there was one I would be lying. There is actually many but there is only one person that has affected my life
My grandmother has a very softhearted voice that I still hear telling me goodnight when we were little. She would wait with us until we fell deep asleep. And even as we got older she would gather us around the kitchen table and let us watch the old fashioned ice cream maker churn the best vanilla ice cream and then she would load it up with chocolate chips, and our parents would always say, "That's too many.", and grandmother just let us keep piling them on. My grandmother is the kind, gentle, loving, caring grandmother that I wish my children could experience today.
