a photo of my grandmother
a photo of my grandmother

I have an old photo, taken in 1943.This is a photo my grandmother, Valentina. I thought this photo was left behind in Russia but I accidentally found it in my old wallet. Now this photo is on my bedside table. In the photo, my grandmother looks very beautiful. She has big eyes, a fashionable hairstyle, and a soft smile. When she died, I was only 5 years old. I remember that smile of hers, and her shining eyes. She was a very kind and considerate person. This photo reminds me of the bright moments of my childhood.
