After reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, I realized that some bad things that have happened to me aren’t really that bad. Jeannette Walls had been through a lot throughout her childhood, and that has made her a very strong person now days. For example, when Jeannette was very young she had dealt with adversity with when she burned herself and went to the hospital for 6 weeks. She also went through some tough times when her father was drinking and wandered off and she was all alone by herself. You have to be a pretty strong person if you can be that young and still deal with the problems that she deals with. The Glass Castle has taught me to always stay strong, no matter how tough the times are, and good things will always happen while …show more content…

And then a couple days later he got in really bad shape again and then when they brought him back to the ER, the doctors said there was nothing else they could do, so they put him in hospice. He was so strong in hospice, but you could just tell everyday that he was getting worse and worse. Then it was a Friday night, and the doctor said that he doesn’t think that he will be around for much longer, said he might not make it through the night. So I went to see him after practice that day and I was sitting there holding his hand telling him how much I loved him and I was crying.

When I would go over there I would always color a picture for my grandpa and he would always say how good it was. Even if it was the worst coloring ever, he would always say it was the best. My grandpa was a big Ohio State fan and me I’m obviously a big Michigan fan. He would always find a chance to give me a hard time about Michigan being bad and how Ohio State is so much better.

I got into the car with him and the first thing he said to me was “...Michigan is bad buddy.” Because I was excited before because that day Michigan played Toledo and I was telling him and myself that they’re not going to lose today, they will win because they are only playing Toledo. And then after they lost that’s when I got in the car with him and he told me that they lost and I didn’t believe him the whole time we were on the ride home. We finally got back to his house and then I realized that he wasn’t kidding around. I was so disappointed! Me and my Grandpa had so many good memories in the time we were with each other.
