Today I’d like to talk about a special person: my grandmother. My Savta, ( Hebrew for grandmother) came to visit us for a week all the way from Atlanta GA.
Together we rode the bus, walked and much much more.
One day when she was here, I wanted to take her out for a treat. First, we walked to the new mall (“Kenyon HaChadash” in Hebrew). Then we went to the bottom floor, which is the food court. There, we went to a mini ice cream store and ordered delicious ice cream. When we finished, we went to the bus stop and caught a bus to the older mall (“Kenyon HaYashan”). In an area that is blocked off from cars, we took a walk and I bought some school supplies from one of my favorite school supplies stores. From there we took another bus to a store called Gama Deal, and we looked around. When it got late, we took a bus to our local shul and walked home from there. We were both very happy that we had gotten to spend some fun time together.
On the last night that she was here, she made us pizza and a salad. Then we posed for some pictures and went for a walk. During our family walk, we saw lots of cool things in our neighborhood. As we were about to cross the street, we saw a man with a huge parrot on his shoulder. He let us take pictures of it while we spoke with him.
It’s always hard to say goodbye, but I know that my Savta is always in my heart.
By the way, here are some pictures of our family having fun with my Savta.
