Credit Deserved

Many people do good in the world, but don’t always get the credit they deserve. One of those many people is a woman. Her name is Mary Ann Halverson and she is my grandma. She does everything that she can to help people, one good thing out of the many things that she does is take care of me. She is my support system in life.

She always wants the best for me and puts me before anything else that’s going on in her chaotic schedule. She is one of the many things in the world that is right. I’m not over exaggerating when I say that my grandma does everything.

She is like a super granny. She does all the house work, all the barn work and most of the gardening work. She cooks, cleans and runs me around everywhere I want to go or need to go. She is the one that makes sure I brush my teeth every morning and night, makes sure I do my homework after school and stays on top of my life.

I don’t know what I would do without her. My grandma is the one who organizes my life. Not to mention my grandpa’s life too! She makes sure he doesn’t come in with grease on his face, washes his clothes, makes his dinner and cleans his office when it gets too bad.

That’s one thing that my grandpa has on me; grandma will clean his room, but not mine. She says I need to have some responsibility around the house. She acts like my mom. She pretty much is my other mother. My grandma is in many ways my mom.

Normal kids live with there moms or dads. I live with my grandma and my grandpa. I treat them as if they were my parents.

They buy me clothes like a mom and dad should do and treat me like their own kid.

Sometimes that’s not always a good thing though. Like when I get grounded. I hate being grounded, but when I think back, my grandma always has a good reason to do so. I might hate that little part about my grandma, but she makes up for it by being there for me when I need someone to talk to.

I tell my grandma everything. I can’t keep anything from her.

Mostly because she gives me good advice. My grandma is my support system. She inspires me to do better in life and not to settle with being good, but to make things my best. She is the one that is rounding me to become a better person and is rearing me to a successful career I’m glad that I have her as my grandma.

A lot of people do brilliant things in the world, but aren’t given nearly as much credit as they deserve. My grandma is one of those people. She is on top of everything. In some sense she is my mom and my big support system.

I am lucky to have her in my life.

Sometimes I don’t always tell her that she is the one thing in my life that I appreciate.

She is truly one of the millions of things that are right in the world.

Mary Ann Halverson, 73, passed away Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015.
