I am a Lucky Girl
By Morgan Kelch, 7th Grade

I am a lucky girl. I have a great-grandma. Not just any great-grandma,
mine is special. I know what you are thinking; everyone thinks that
their grandma is special. Mine really is. Everything she does is for
One of the many things she does is make homemade applesauce, angel food
cakes, and noodles to pass out to family and friends. When someone in
the community passes away, she is happy to make an angel food cake for
the grieving family. Recently she made 35 angel food cakes and donated
them to the Right to Life when they had their annual garage sale. In
addition to that, she made 30 cakes to sell at her own garage sale
donating that money to the missions in Chili, South America. Her sister
works as a missionary there and always appreciates any help that is
given to them.
When she is not baking for others, she can be found in her basement
sewing quilts for the veterans who have served our country and the
babies that are in need at the Right to Life. All summer she spends
hours at garage sales looking for pieces of material to use for her
project and all winter long she works very hard putting them together.
This summer my little sister is entering the Miss Chick contest at the
Versailles Poultry Days. She is very excited to be in the contest and
to wear the dress that her great-grandmother made for her. I hope that
My brothers, sister, and I love to visit her. She is very kind and
always has an interesting story for us. Sometimes she lets us go up to
the attic and do some exploring. It is fun to look in boxes and in
closets for old treasures. On our way down to the basement to help her
put a puzzle together, we like to make a stop in the living room to
sneak some candy from the candy dish.
My Great-Grandma has taught me that it is good to do things for others.
I don’t see her do much for herself and would like her to know that
people appreciate all that she does. I love her very much.
As I said before, and as you can see, I am a lucky girl.
