MY GRANDMOTHER WAS MY ANGEL FROM HEAVEN. I WAS BORN INTO A VERY MIXED UP FAMILY. I WAS VERY SHY AND DISTANT. MY GRANDMOTHER SAW HOW I REALLY FELT. SO SHE WOULD TAKE ME TO HER HOUSE EVERY WEEK END WAY FROM ALL THE DRAMA AT HOME. SHE TAUGHT ME SO MANY THINGS. SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO LOVE. SHE WOULD ALWAYS HUG ME AND KISS ME AND AT FIRST I WOULD PULL AWAY. BUT AFTER AWHILE I STARTED TO LIKE HOW IT FELT TO BE HUGGED AND KISSED. SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO COOK AND SEW AND IRON. WE WOULD TALK FOR HOURS. SHE ASKED ME WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO WHEN I GREW UP. I TOLD HER I WANTED TO BE A WRITER. SHE GOT SOME PAPER AND A PENCIL AND TOLD ME TO WRITE ABOUT ANYTHING I WANTED. I STARTED WRITING POETRY. I FOUND OUT I WAS REALLY GOOD AT IT. SO EVERY WEEK END I HAD A POEM FOR MY GRANDMOTHER TO READ. SHE MADE ME FEEL SO SPECIAL. THERE WAS STILL DRAMA AT HOME BUT I LEARNED HOW TO DROWN IT OUT. BY WRITING AND WRITING AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL ALL I COULD HEAR WAS THE BEATING OF MY HEART. MY GRANDMOTHER HAS PASSED NOW FOR MANY YEARS, BUT WITHOUT HER LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN WHO I AM TODAY. A PERSON WHO LOVES WITH ALL HER HEART.
