My Grandfather's Watch


My grandfather's pocket watch is the last thing I have to remember him by now that he passed away. My grandfather was always supportive and happy, he never missed a day of worked and he showed me that determination pays off. The watch is brown and has an eagle on the face of the watch with a flowery design. He moved to US from Mexico for a better job and better lifestyle. He came with my grandmother and my father. If my grandfather didn’t move to the US, I don’t know where I would be or what I would be doing so I am very grateful for his decision. I hope to one day be like him and be able to support my own family and be as determined and hard working as him. 

Place(s): Mexico, USA
