My Special Person Essay

Everybody has that one special person in their life that means the world to them. Either they were there for you physically, mentally, and/ or emotionally. I have a person that was there for me through it all and that person is my Grandfather /Dad. He passed away this year but he is the reason I’m who I am today. The reason why he is special to me is because he raised me when my real dad did not want to, we did everything together, and no matter what I did he was there by me all the way.

Now let me explain to you why my Grandfather was so special to me. The first reason why my grandfather was so special to me is because he raised me when my real dad did not want to. When I was born my grandfather asked my mom to let him and my grandma raise me because they never had kids together. Since my real dad denied me when I was born they took me in. My Grandfather kept me and treated me like I was his own blood. He never once treated me like I was his step granddaughter.

My grandfather made sure he showered me with a lot of love. Another reason why my grandfather was so special to me is because we did everything together. He always made sure we did father and daughter things together. He took me fishing, the barber shop, we went out to dinner every Sunday, and we use to wash the car together every Saturday. My Grandfather taught me how to tie a tie and everywhere you seen him you seen me. I’m very glad that he did because he showed me how a man supposed to treat a woman.

The Last reason why my grandfather was so special to me is because no matter what I did he was there by me all the way. I think back when I was a little girl I use to get up early in the morning and go lay in his arms. He always use to say he would never neglect me and as I got older I made a lot of mistakes but he never judged me at all. When I got pregnant at 18 I thought he would have been mad at me, but he was so happy. If I ever did disappoint him he never did show it and I love him so much for that.

I know that he is gone now, but he’s in a better place. No matter what he will always be so very special to me. The reason why he is special to me is because he raised me when my real father did not want to, we did everything together, and no matter what I did he was there by me all the way. If you have someone special in your life tell them because you never know when it’s time for them to go. I never knew it would hurt this much but I’m glad he knew he was very special to me.
