eleven...

This is a picture I took this morning of my Grandfather, ever since we lost my Grandmother last spring I have spent Friday mornings with him. My Grandma was my first Friday morning appt for years...she always came in first thing for a shampoo and blow dry and a chat. Grandpa was always pretty close by, either coming in with her or arriving at some point throughout the appt...so if nothing else I would spend at least a half an hour with them every week.
When my Grandmother passed away last spring I decided that I would still keep that appt time open and would just go and visit with my Grandfather instead of filling it with another "do".

happy friday

Hi! Just dropped by from SITS, and boy do I understand what you mean about your grandpa. I think it's pretty awesome that you kept that time for him, too. (I'd give anything to have more time with mine.)

This is such a sweet post - it warms my heart...

I lost all my grandparents when I was teenager and lost my husband's grandmother whom I was really close to two years ago.. I long those days when I was visiting my grandparents and sitting their lap talking and listening to the stories or just playing with them...

You're very lucky to have your grandfather still alive and so healthy!

It's frustrating trying to figure out what makes people behave like they do, when "just be nice" would be so much easier. Kudos to you for sticking with him.

Wow...honesty is a beautiful thing. It's wonderful that you continue to visit with him realizing the value that it has...even though all of those bad memories and fear of a blow up may occur.

I wonder if he is fearing the same thing on his side.

Great post.
