household, cook, etc. There was one Christmas,
however, that she has stood out in my memories.
It was the Christmas my Grandma patiently
taught me to make crafts. Grandma does some

my Grandmas house this particular year. I was 9
years old and Christmas held every promise in

kids their own memories to smile fondly upon in
years to come.
