I Look At My Grandfather And...


I look at my grandfather and I know

that health and youth are not everlasting, but courage and determination is



I look at my grandfather and I know

that families are not born, they are built


I look at my grandfather and I know

that it doesn't matter how much you got, but how many you have to share it with


I look at my grandfather and I know

that the wisdom and lessons for life that I could get from his bed time stories are far greater than any book or school would have ever taught


I look at my grandfather and I know

that he is a different generation altogether

Patient, regal, elite and exclusive

Past week my grandfather celebrated his 91st birthday. As a family, I realize how incredibly lucky we are to have him around. I scribbled these lines thinking about him and his effect on our family. May his presence continues to bless us for many more years to come.

Amen!
