Grandparents, I Love You!

My four grandparents have a goal in common in their lives; their goal is to see our family full of happiness and to see us growing up healthy and happy.

Grandparents are important and influentual persons in all people's lives. They are those people who take care of you and love you. They are special persons who can give you wise advice.

My grandparents always taught me respect for others, and they showed me with their experience that love and feelings are important things in my life and that I don't have to pay attention to material things or what people externally look like.

To describe my grandparents I have to say that they are beautiful people that I admire because they are so active and so healthy.

Even though they are old, they always have a strong desire to enjoy life. In addition, the most important thing is that they are full of love and offer it to their families.

My grandparents are a huge mixture of culture and nationalities because they come from different countries. For example, from my mother's side my grandfather is from Spain, and my grandmother is also from Spain, but from a different city. From my father's side, my grandfather is from Venezuela, and my grandmother is from Italy. Even though this is a huge mixture, my grandparents have a very good relationship.

My four grandparents have a goal in common in their lives; their goal is to see our family full of happiness and to see us growing up healthy and happy because they want me and my family to have a successful future, and so they can prove to themselves that they did a great job raising my parents.

Furthermore, my grandparents are people that are always in tune to the new things in the world. For example, my grandmothers always care about fashion, how they dress and their personal appearance. And my grandfathers always care about economics or important issues in the world.

I think I am very lucky that all of my grandparents are alive because I have learned so much from them. I would like to continue learning from them even though we are living in different countries now. I will always remember my grandparents as role models for me.

I think no one can ever replace people like our grandparents; they can understand our doubts about life because nobody in this world has more experience about life than they have. So, grandparents, I love you!
