my grandmother is with us today she is already 80 year old. whenever she needs somthing i cant understand what she is saying. Not jsut my grandma but even other old people around our neighborhood. i see lots of yourngr people talking to elders and it seems pretty easy for them but me..grrrr.. i dont know! idont know if its because of my hearing or there speech that i cant comprehend. do you somtimes find it hard to talk to old people? or its just me?

Maybe it's just you, lols. I have no problem talking to older people especially my late grandma. She was sweet and even though she fails to recognize me sometimes, she tries to make me feel welcome whenever I visit because somehow she knows that I'm one of her granddaughters. Try giving her something as a gift and tell her it's from you, they really appeciate it. Just be patient around them. Gestures are easier to understand than words.

Sometimes it is hard, but it takes practice, just like everything else. With your grandmother, remember the things you shared when she and you were younger, it will give you the patience to keep trying, for love's sake.
