My grandparents are my agony aunts, mentors, friends, foes and guides. Their life revolves around me. Though I don’t have much time with them as they stay away from me but they take time to reach out to me in everyway possible. When I am with them they take good care of me. I do gardening with my grandma, go out shopping with her, accompany her to the temple and look out for small excuses to be with her. I play indoor games with my grandpa and he pretends to lose, just to make me happy. I am not old enough to take care of them but try to reciprocate their love and affection by doing small errands for them and giving them company. Growing up is fun with them. I have learnt so much from them: discipline, respect for elders, kindness, humility, faith in god, and above all, being a good human being.

I spend my time with my grandparents by looking after their needs and accompanying them at tea time. I usually chat with them to set their boredom off. Sometimes I ask them to help me finish off my homework so that they feel close to me. I tell them my long tale of how I spent the day and all other incidents that took place in school and I assure to accompany them for evening walks.
It should be our first priority to look after our grandparents, not just because they love and care us but because it is our responsibility. We should always be the first person to fulfil their needs because we are their loveliest granddaughters and grandsons. They play various roles in our life. They are our teachers, counsellors, value-educators, lovers, well-wishers, doctors, true friends and what not? Their lives are inspiring, their experiences teach a lot beyond what we learn from school, their way of looking at the monthly expenses teach us the way to manage money.

Like our parents, our grandparents too play a vital role in moulding our character. We like to spend time with our grandparents because talking with them helps to forget our worries and tensions. We have a lot to learn from their experience which cannot be acquired from any books. They don't expect any gift. All they want from us is to spend time with them and exchange pleasantry.

My Grandfather’s House Essay
741 Words3 Pages
My grandfather’s house is a very special place to be. I lived with my grandfather for many years when I was little. His house always seemed to have something about it that set it apart from all the rest. As you walk into the front door of his house you notice a long, slender stairway that led up into the main hallway of the house. The strong smell of cigarette smoke is quite evident when you reach this point. Yes, my grandfather did smoke. My grandfather's house was always full of laughter and many cheers. Our family used to call it the M.A.R.T.A station. There was always someone over his house visiting whether it was family or friends. My grandfather's door was always open to everyone no matter what. When my grandfather had company,…show more content…
In the summer time my grandfather and whoever happened to be at the house would sit out on the sundeck for hours and talk about anything and everything imaginable; he was known as the neighborhood gossip king. The sundeck was a place for everyone to sit and relax in the warm sunny breeze. My grandfather was a very spontaneous person, he did what he wanted to at the drop of a hat and nobody ever stopped him, and would not let a job go until he was fully satisfied with it. He was always very active in many things like playing sports, gardening, cooking, farming, etc., but always had time for the ones he loved. Living at my grandfather’s house was indeed a lot of fun because he was so easy going with me, our grandfather played games with us, the more physical the better. He allowed me to do all the things that I wanted to do and dreamed about. He was always willing to lend me a hand in anything that I needed. He was a highly giving person to everyone around him and he never asked for anything in return. He always had an ear to ear smile that would brighten up anyone's day if it was not going to well. My grandfather had a very deep, but a fading, kind of scratchy voice that I remember he sung us to sleep when we were little. He would wait with us until we fell deep asleep and in the morning he would wake us with the smell of hot freshly cooked breakfast on the table. My grandfather could cook, he
