I just returned home from a special evening with my Grandpa Merrill. I haven’t taken the opportunity to go and visit him as much as I should. We had a great time! I learned so much from him and his insight. Tonight was the first time that I have approached him ready to leave the fear of vulnerability behind and open up. He shared with me experiences about my wonderful deceased grandmother and their courtship. I enjoyed his advice, I enjoyed his openness with me, I appreciated his confidence in me. I want to visit him more often. I feel peace in my life right now. Thank you grandpa, thank you grandma, thank you Heavenly Father!

Here is a poem that I’ve wanted to post for some time. It speaks for itself…

“A man growing old becomes a child again.”
-Sophocles
