Day 242
18. 
“A picture of myself in a picture frame taken when I was 1 year old with my mother holding me on her lap.”
I’m an adult now! Legally that is. I would first off like to thank my grandparents for raising me for practically during the duration of my whole life time, taking me into their care when I was merely 8 months old. When I woke up this morning, my grandmother called me out to the patio in the backyard where my grandfather was sitting, and he handed me an envelope and said “Happy Birthday, Stevie!” I opened up the envelope, and then he told me to pull out everything one by one. I counted as I pulled out $100 bills. In total, he had put in $1,000 for me as my birthday present. I was shocked. He then proceeded by saying this, “The reason why I wanted to give you $1,000 in 10 $100 bills, is because someday, when I’m no longer around, I’ll hope that you’ll always remember that your grandfather gave you $1,000 in $100 bills on your 18th birthday, and that this memory will replay in your mind after I’ve passed away and you come across another $100 bill again.” He then said, “This may be my last birthday gift to you…” I started to tear up and gave him a big hug and he hugged me back the best that he could, since he was sitting down. That was honestly the best gift ever. Better than a new laptop, or a new camera, or even a car. I really didn’t do much afterwards for the remainder of the day, but I was okay with that. I just read my reading assignments for class tomorrow and right now I’m watching the Republican National Convention on FOXNews. Also, Happy Birthday Senator John McCain! You did a good job tonight during your speech. I’d like to conclude today’s post by once again thanking both my grandfather and my grandmother for today and for the past 17 years and 4 months.
