My Granddaddy

My Granddaddy is dying of cancer.  Instead of focusing on the negative, I want to remember the good things.

Here are a few things that come to mind when I think of my Granddaddy:

History channel lover.

Joke teller.

Loves the outside.

Loves Reba MacIntyre. :)

He's spoiled by Memaw's home cooking.

Loves his grandkids and great grandkids.  Seriously, he is always telling people about us, and always wants to know what's going on in our lives. Some people aren't fortunate enough to have people that care about them, so I'm very thankful for that.

Has had the opportunity to travel the world with my Memaw.  They always brought each grandkid something back, and those things are very special to me.

This is just something I needed to do.  Writing is very therapeutic for me, so it helps to be able to release my emotions. I also want Mason to know Granddaddy and the only thing he will have is stories and pictures. Even though I'm not doing Memories Rewind weekly right now, I may write some about my family when the mood strikes. 

I've visited with my Granddaddy a lot these past few weeks, and I'm so grateful for the time I have with him. I'm also glad that I've been able to go visit my grandparents more this past year because my health is better than it was a few years ago. 

Hug your loved your loved ones a little tighter today and always find ways to make memories.
