cell phone

Relationship: Im/migrant

My best memory about my phone. It is more than just a device. It's a memory from my grandma. She gave it to me as a gift five years ago, and it holds a special place in my heart. Every time I use it, I'm reminded of her love and kindness. My grandmother was a kind woman with silver hair and bright eyes. We spent a lot of time together, baking cookies and working on puzzles. She was patient and loving, always ready to listen. One of my favorite memories is sitting in her garden, talking and enjoying lemonade. I miss her every day. My phone still works perfectly, which makes it even more meaningful to me. She gave me the phone because it was a special occasion. It was my birthday. Unfortunately, because I moved, the phone is the only thing I have from her, and it reminds me of her every day. I hope I can meet her again sometime soon.
