His wife dying. Marge McPartlin died on October 3rd, 2013. True, it has been hard for my grandfather, but somehow, he has still been the same, funny guy I knew him to be before. So, now you know why my grandfather inspires me. It’s because even with everything he has faced, the life he has, all the good and the bad, he has been positive.
They had a hard time just living day to day, as seen by this part of the book "Ántonia and her father came over to our house to get buttermilk, and lingered, as they usually did," they had always been working hard during the entire year, even when the winter was unforgiving and brittle. They worked the entire time. They were in the middle of something bigger than themselves and great... But they wanted more, they needed, more. Not tokenism the fact that they were riding their hopes and dreams on one of the sons to succeed on the farm, Ambroz.
Joe’s senior summer he worked cutting down cotton trees and digging trenches, he was working all he could so he can pay his first year at Washington University. When Joe worked at Grand Coulee he knew that the work was going to be tough and he had to work long hours, yet Joe accepted the facts and thrived at his Job. A big factor of Joe’s success was the fact that Joe had a work ethic. Without his work ethic Joe would not have been able to get to where he was, he was lucky that: Joyce, Pocock, Charlie McDonald, and his brother Fred contributed at Joe’s worst times and at the most perfect moment and this allowed Joe to become a successful as he dreamed
‘ This is our own place’” (Bambara 7). Granddaddy is very patient with the cameramen before they leave, and with persistence, success followed, and the cameramen finally left. Granddaddy’s use of the words “our” and “own” shows that his pride of his house is very strong, so he does not want anyone invading his land or Granny’s flowerbed. When privacy is invaded, assertion and persistence can be
Mr. Myers, I appreciate you taking the time to stop in and wish me well. Please do not feel as if my decision to resign is a reflection of your leadership. I whole heartily believe that you are a great leader and a breath of fresh air for this organization. Resigning was a difficult decision for me…. Carolinas Telco Federal Credit Union is a great company!
Sullivan, 16 at the time her father delivered this powerful message to her, was the least bit thrilled. Sullivan was on her way to fifth-grade math teachers funeral when her dad decided it was best for her to experience the funeral alone. Although it made Sullivan feel nothing but awkward, she put her best foot forward and showed up. Sullivan recounts her unpleasant experience offering the Emerson family her
I ran to my father dangling my arm yelling “DAD I BROKE MY ARM!” He didn’t believe me at first, but once he saw my arm he knew it was true. Luckily, a family friend –who was a cardiologist- was there and helped us to the emergency room 15 minutes away. I was nine years old when this occurred and it significantly influenced my decision of pursuing medicine. But I didn’t have time to dwell on the minutia, because the majority of my adolescence was spent working at my parents’ restaurant after school. I would bus tables, take to-go orders, roll silverware in napkins, and drop off catering orders near and far.
Dad is my favorite parent, he actually listens to me. Dad will be coming today, I cannot wait to ask him what he thinks of the shack. Mom has gone crazy this week trying to get organized. She has been yelling at me to help her, but all I can think about now is the shack. I asked her what she would think if I found a spell book and of course she screeched about how I should keep my head out of the clouds.
He had a great imagination. He always imagined that we were better than we were. Pop said “ If you are well-liked you will make it in life.” You were the biggest supporter of Happy and I. I may have never lived out the dream you had for me, but my wish now is for you to see that the salesman life isn’t for me. You know my passion for the outdoors, and life as a farmer gives me the same happiness the sales life gave you. I’m sorry Pop but you had all the wrong dreams for me.
I gave Bartlett an A for his role, because throughout the three episodes, Bartlett acts with respect and understanding towards his party. For example, instead of acting out towards Josh Lyman like everyone expected him to do, he allowed Josh a second chance because Bartlett knew that without him, he would have not been able to become president. Also, along with accepting advice, he treats his party with a respectful manner, knowing that they all played a key role in his presidency and that they will always be there to help him when needed. Bartlett does a great job of being the Chief of Party because he knows that he is dependent on everyone in the party and needs to treat them with the same respect they give to
