    Parents have cashed in life insurance policies to cover the cost of one year. Родители были обналичены в полисы страхования жизни для покрытия расходов на один год.

    My mother knew that she could not send me to school and pay for it. Моя мама знала, что она не могла послать меня в школу и платить за это. She worked in a retail store and made just enough to pay the bills and take care of the other children at home. Она работала в магазине и зарабатывал достаточно, чтобы платить по счетам и заботиться о других детей дома.If 1 wanted to go to col­lege. it was up to me to find out how to get there.

While not glamorous, it was one 1 could do. 1 washed dishes in the school cafeteria. Пока не гламур, это был один 1 мог сделать. 1 мыть посуду в школьной столовой.

Чтобы помочь себе учиться, 1 сделанной Flash открытки, которые отлично вписываются на большие металлические посудомоечная машина. After 1 loaded the racks, 1 stood there and Hipped cards, learning the makeup of atoms while water and steam broke them down all around me. После 1 загрузки стеллажей, 1 стоял там и карты Шатровые, изучение состава атомов, в то время как вода и пар разбил их вниз все вокруг меня. 1 learned how to make у equal to z while placing dishes in stacks. 1 научились делать у равна Z при размещении посуды в штабеля.My wrinkled fingers flipped many a card, and many times my tired brain drifted off, and a glass would crash to the floor. Мои морщинистые пальцы отщелкивали много карт, и много раз мой уставший мозг отключился, и Стекло бы упала на пол. My grades went up and down. It was the hardest work 1 had ever done. Мои оценки пошли вверх и вниз. Это была самая тяжелая работа 1 никогда не делал.

    Just when 1 thought the bottom was going to drop out of my col­lege career, an angel appeared. Просто когда 1 мысль внизу собирается бросать свою карьеру колледжа, явился ангел. Well, one of those that are on earth, without wings. "1 heard that you need some help," he said. Ну, один из тех, что есть на земле, без крыльев. "1 слышал, что вам нужна помощь", - сказал он.

    "What do you mean?" I asked, trying to figure out which area of my life he meant. "Что ты имеешь в виду?" Я спросил, пытаясь выяснить, какие области моей жизни, он имел в виду.

    "Financially, to stay in school."

    "В финансовом отношении, чтобы остаться в школе."

    "Well, I make it okay. 1 just have trouble working all these hours and finding time to study." "Ну, я делаю это хорошо. 1 просто трудно работать все эти часы и находить время для изучения".

    "Well, 1 think 1 have a way to help you." "Ну, думаю 1 1 есть способ, чтобы помочь вам." He went on to explain that his grandparents needed help on the weekends Он продолжал объяснять, что его бабушка и дедушка нуждались в помощи по выходным.. All that was required of me was cooking meals and helping them gel in and out of bed in the morning and evening. Все, что требовалось от меня готовила еду и помогая им гель и из постели утром и вечером. The job paid four hundred dollars a month, twice the money Задание заплатил четыреста долларов в месяц, в два раза больше денег, я делал мытье посуды. I was making washing dishes. Now I would have time to study. I went to meet his grandparents and accepted the job. Теперь у меня будет время, чтобы учиться. Я пошел, чтобы встретить его бабушку и дедушку и принял работу.

    My first discovery was his grandmother's great love of music Мое первое открытие было его бабушки большая любовь к музыке.. She spent hours playing her old, off-key piano. Она проводила часы, играя свою старую, фальшиво пианино. One day, she told me § didn't have enough fun in my life and took it upon herself to teach me the art. Однажды она сказала мне § не было достаточно весело провести время в моей жизни, и взяла на себя, чтобы научить меня искусству. My campus had several practice rooms with pianos where music majors could practice. Мой студенческий городок имел несколько практики номера с пианино, где музыка крупные фирмы могли практиковать.I found myself going into those room more and more often. Я нашел себя вдаваясь в те комнаты все чаще и чаще.

    Grandma was impressed with my ability and encouraged me id continue. Бабушка была поражена моей способности и сподвиг меня ID продолжить.Weekends in their house became more than just books and cooking; they were filled with the wonderful sounds of the out-of-tune- piano and two very out-of-tune singers. Выходные дни в их доме стало больше, чем просто книги и приготовления пищи; они были наполнены замечательными звуками вне-TUNE- пианино и двух очень из расстроенную певцов.

    When Christmas break came. Когда рождественские каникулы пришли.Grandma got a chest cold, and 1 was afraid to leave her. Бабушка получила простуда, и 1 боялся оставить ее.1 hadn't been home sinceLaborDay, and my fam­ily was anxious to see me. 1 не было дома, так как День труда, и мой family очень хотел видеть меня. 1 agreed to come home, but for two week! instead of four, so 1 could return to Grandma and Grandpa. 1 согласились приехать домой, но за две недели! вместо четырех, так что 1 может вернуться к бабушке и дедушке.I said my good-byes, arranged for their temporary care and returned home. 1 сказал мой прощания, переложение для их временного ухода и вернулся домой.

    As I was loading my car to go back to school, the phone rang. Как 1 грузил мой автомобиль, чтобы вернуться в школу, зазвонил телефон.

    "Daneen, don't rush back," he said. "Daneen, не спешите назад," сказал он.

    "Why? What's wrong?" 1 asked, panic rising. "Почему? Что-то не так?" 1 спросил, паника растет.

    "Grandma died last night, and we have decided to put Grandpa in a retirement home. I'm sorry." "Бабушка умерла прошлой ночью, и мы решили поставить дедушку в дом престарелых. Мне очень жаль."

    1 hung up the phone feeling like mv world had ended. повесил трубку телефона, как чувство мв мир закончился. 1 had lost mv friend, and that was far worse than knowing 1 would have to return to dishwashing. 1 потерял мв друга, и это было гораздо хуже, чем знание 1, придется вернуться к мытьем посуды.

    1 went back at the end of four weeks, asking to begin the work- study program again. 1 вернулся в конце четырех недель, с просьбой начать работы- учебную программу еще раз.

    I'he financiall aid advisor looked at me as if 1 had lost my mind. I'he financiall советник помощь посмотрел на меня, как если бы 1 сошел с ума. 1 explained my position, then he smiled and slid me an envelope. объяснил свою позицию, то он улыбнулся и скользнул мне конверт. "This is for you," he said. "Это для вас", сказал он.

    It was from Grandma. Это было от бабушки. She had known how sick she was. Она знала, как она была больна. !!n the envelope was enough money to pay for the rest of my school year and a request that I take piano lessons in her memory. П конверт было достаточно денег, чтобы заплатить за оставшуюся часть моей учебного года и просьбу, что я брал уроки игры на фортепиано в ее памяти.

    I don't think "The Old Grey Mare" was ever played with more feeling than it was my second year in college. Now, years later, when я не думаю, что "The Old Grey Mare" был когда-либо играл с большим чувством, чем это был мой второй год в колледже. Теперь, спустя годы, когда

    I walk by a piano, 1 smile and think of Grandma. Я хожу по фортепьяно, 1 улыбка и думать о бабушке. She is tearing up the ivories in heaven, Она разрывает слоновой кости на небе, 1 am sure. 1 в этом уверен Daneen Kaufman Wedekind

    I used to watch her from my kitchen window and laugh. She seemed so small as she muscled her way through the crowd of boys on the playground. The school was across the street from our home, and 1 often stood at my window, hands buried in dishwater or cookie dough, watching the kids as they played during recess. A sea of children, and yet to me, she stood out from them all.

    1 remember the first day 1 saw her playing basketball. 1 watched in wonder as she ran circles around the other kids. She managed to shoot jump-shots just over their heads and into the net. The boys always tried to stop her, but no one could.
