Word power 2

Tara's friend Anjula entered the classroom.

She had a big smile on her face.

"Guess what? Grandma is going to visit us again!" she told Tara.

"Oh, that's so nice!" Tara answered with a smile.

She knew that Anjula adored her grandma.

Tara too loved her grandma a lot.

"Grandma is coming this afternoon," said a beaming Anjula.

Tara smiled again.

She wondered why they all loved their grandmas.

All grandmas are very kind to their grandchildren.

"Why do you think we all love our grandmas?" she asked Anjula.

"Well, they are so sweet, kind and tell us nice stories.." Anjula rattled off.

"They never say anything hurtful to us" she added.

Tara agreed.

"Grandma would not move away from my bed when I was sick" Anjula recalled.

"My grandma is also like that, she is so very caring," Tara told her friend.

"Remember Tara, I did not like studies at all when I was small..." Anjula reminded Tara.

"It was our grandma who motivated me to study" she said.

"Is that so?" a wide eyed Tara asked.

"Yes, very kindly she explained to me the benefits of a good education!" explained Anjula.

"She taught me how to divide time for subjects when doing homework" continued Anjula.

"Her words of advice are imprinted on my mind" said Anjula, with a serious tone in her voice.

Tara nodded her head.

She knew how kind words can change people.
