When I was a kid I used to get kind of sad thinking that my kids would never get to know my grandparents. I guess I just assumed that I wouldn’t have kids while they still lived on this Earth. My dad is the baby of the family and I’m in the younger set of grandkids, my Grampa has been a cancer survivor for thirty four years now, and he’ll be turning 90 years old this month!
And so I consider it a pretty big blessing whenever I see my kids with my grandparents. Ev knows who they are and calls them both something like, ‘pampa.’ She gives Grampa high fives/handshakes and tells him to ‘sit side Ello.’ And she takes Grama’s hand and pulls her down toward the beach.
More to come!
