I do not know how they got together but I admired my grandparents’ love, even though the world is big, their hearts always linked to each other. They lived together for more than fifty years, from young boy and girl to grandfather and grandmother. Grandparents usually frugally, for me it is generous. Grandfather love me very much, though I learning far away from home, we often call each other and talk about life conditions, so my roommates always envied me. I must be a good girl and repay him by the most outstanding academic performance. At home, my favorite person is my grandfather. He was not only my elders, my friends, but my good model.

Grandfather was an old driver, but he retired from now on has 15 years and he said when he was young, he was addicted to gambling, but later he found other people cheated on it. Well, he vowed never gamble again. At last, he did it. Grandma is a typical traditional Chinese housewife who caring kids all the time. I miss my grandmother's cooking, especially the sweet and sour pork, I'm going to run a shop called "The Taste of Grandma "I will express the taste and love to everyone.

Now I still living with them, they are more than 70 years old, and twice a year holiday is their busiest time for their own niece. In the morning, they go to the market to buy vegetables, food. Probably around 9:00, they are ready to drink tea together and cook together at noon. In the afternoon grandfather accompany with grandmother to jump Square Dance, then grandmother accompany with grandfather to go for a walk at night in return. Grandmother helps him cut the hair, grandfather helps her wash, grandmother doing the laundry, grandfather mopping the floor.

365 every single day, they like a couple fall in love, holding hands to give each other warm, quietly passing the wordless love.

Grandpa said, she suffered a lot of bad things when she was young, so I want to cherish her more. They supporting each other for 50 several spring and autumn period, it is not easy. Grandma said that my grandfather was a young handsome man, but I never worried about him coming out of the chaos, it doesn’t matter how much he gave I will receive. Every time when my grandmother cooked something delicious, good food always hid in the bottom of the bowl of grandpa’s and he transferred them every time when grandma did not pay attention to the two bowls. But finally they always share the delicious that hid in the bowl with a smile. I think this is special love between the older generations.

In fact, the mutual support between husband and wife is the greatest happiness of life. Growing old together is the highest level of love. I hope that all the couples can love each other like my grandparents, health and happiness.

    probably the most important thing is to make yourself available. Then, be presentable etc...these are some of the basic's which Im sure you already do. Also, not to take things too seriously. This can lead to problems. Give and take and  just enjoy each others company. Go slow too...
