Ahmed loved his Grandma. When he was a baby, his Grandma used to help his Mom and Dad take care of him. In fact, when his parents had to go somewhere, it was his Grandma who used to watch over him.

1


As he grew older, Ahmed’s Grandma still did so much for him. She would take care of him when he was sick, and make him food everyday after school. She would make him soup, spaghetti, and even macaroni and cheese.

3


As Ahmed’s Grandma got older, she wasn’t able to move as good as she used to, and she grew slower and slower. However, she still tended to Ahmed in whatever way she could. She would ask, “Ahmed, do you want some juice? Ahmed, can I get you something to eat?”

5


Ahmed didn’t pay much attention to the changes that were occurring in his Grandma, until one day she couldn’t get up from her chair. Ahmed then started realizing that his Grandma was getting old.

7


After that, Ahmed started doing things for his Grandma. He would help her sit down, get up, walk, and he would take food out for her. He would sit and talk to her when she was alone. He would listen to her sing. And he would even sing a song or two for her.

9


Ahmed was caring for his Grandma the same way she used to care for him when he was little. And although Ahmed’s Grandma couldn’t do things for him like she used to, he still felt the warmth of her love because it felt like the sunshine on his skin.

11


One day, Ahmed’s Grandma said, “Ahmed, it is a blessing to have you as a Grandson. I took care of you for so many years, and now look at me. I am old and lonely. However, you still love me. You still care for me.”

13


Ahmed then said, “Grandma, you may not be able to walk, you may not be able to talk, and you may even forget who I am, but I promise you that I will always love and care for you.�

15


Upon saying that, a tear fell down Ahmed’s Grandma’s eye like a bright star. The tear was pure joy because she knew Ahmed would always care for her.
