Visiting Grandpa.


Mom and I visited my grandpa today. He was happy to see us. He shed little tears, like he always does when he sees me. We exchanged laughter and bits of memories.

He looked well. His mind is still very sharp. And his speech, very clear. He misses my grandma everyday and the mere mention of her name tears him up. He sings her love songs some nights.

After exchanging more laughter, I asked him to pray I get filthy rich. "Why?" he asked. "I just want to become one." I grinned. He said he will.

More stories were exchanged. More laughter, too. And just before we left, I reminded him to pray for me. "I'll pray you get married," he replied and laughed out loud. He loves to tease me.

On our drive home, Mom and I talked about grandpa -- about what an honorable, intelligent, principled, honest, decent man he is. He was very hardworking and loyal, too.

"You must be very proud of your parents," I told Mom. "I am," she said.

Hahaha! It would be nice if he'd still be around when I walk down the aisle. Thank you, Tita, for including him in your prayers.

Thanks for your prayers, Chel.
He is loved. And everyone around him always tries to make him happy and as comfortable as possible. :)

We are also very lucky to have him.

*hugs back to you*

I wish your grandpa well! It must be so hard what he is going through, but he surely is handling it very well. It think having people around him show their love is helping a lot.

Kinsa'y kuyog niya ug puyo, Ai?

Hi Liz! He lives with my Mom's brother's family. And we make sure we visit him often. :)
