The Good 'Ol Days

This is my grandpa as a hot-headed 20 something. Isn't he handsome?


I often think about what a blessing it is to have him in my life. He is the man who has always been there for me. He was quick to forgive my youthful mistakes, the one who took me camping and road tripping. He was the one who gave me my first and only spanking. He was the one who walked me down the aisle. The second man to hold my child after he was born. The man whose advice I still covet. The man who has accepted my sweet husband as his own son. He is the man who will forever hold my little girl heart and will always be my Pa.
