Beautiful

7 Feb

I had a chance to remember my precious grandfather today, thanks to an absolutely beautiful post over at Oh, the Joys.  I cried… alot… when I read it, but it was a nice, refreshing sort of crying.  I got a chance to think about all of the wonderful things my Papa brought into my life.  I took the time to remember his sweet smile, his wonderful laugh, and the soft, wrinkly skin on his big calloused hands.  I got to think about how he would insist on mowing the lawn until the day he died, wearing his big straw hat, his plaid shirt, and his gray pants with suspenders.  He would ride around on the riding lawnmower my uncle bought him until every blade of grass was perfect.

I loved that man.  I still love that man.

Thanks, J.
