Back in my Day
Transcript of Back in my Day
Even though our lives were very different, my grandma and I were great friends. I love her and I miss her.
My grandma was in the army during World War II. She worked in an airplane factory.
My grandmother lived in a shack made out of wooden crates that the grocery store gave to her family. It was covered in tar paper.
I live in a nice, two-story house.
My grandma was so poor that she often had to eat water mixed with flour for dinner.
I eat whatever I want to eat. I am a picky eater, and I am a vegetarian, so I am very lucky to have so many food choices.
I teach English at Orem Junior High School.
My grandma and I both love dogs. She had a cute little dog named Keisha and I have a dog named Coco.
My grandma and I both love to cook and bake. I always bake my grandma's favorite treats at Christmas.
My life is easier than my grandma's life. She had a difficult childhood, and thanks to her, I didn't. My grandma was not able to get a college education, but she encouraged my mom and me to graduate from college. My grandma also became a widow when she was quite young. Thankfully, my husband is still alive. Some people may argue that it is more difficult to live in the modern world, but I know that many of the struggles my grandma faced were very challenging. I'm grateful that my grandma was willing to sacrifice, work hard, and love me so that my life could be a little easier than hers.
My life is easier than my grandma's. She had a difficult childhood and, thanks to her, I did not. She was not able to go to college, but she encouraged my mom and me to graduate from college. My grandma became a widow at a very young age. Thankfully, my husband is still alive. Some people may say that today's world is more challenging than the world of my grandma's day, but many of the hardships that my grandma had to overcome were very difficult. I am grateful that my grandma made sacrifices, worked hard, and loved me so that my life could be easier than hers.
