The Best Mother's Day Present

As my wife opened her Mother's Day card from my eldest son and his wonderful wife, she let out a minor shriek. I ran into the living room to see what was going on. She gushed "We're gonna be granparents." A lump formed in my throat and my ears began to tear up. I felt such joy at both her exuberance, and at the fact that I am going to be a grandpa. It is hard to put into words how much I love babies and children. I was born to be a Dad, and a Grandpa. That is my most important calling in life.

Our home was a very happy one today.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

If you loved being a dad, "you ain't seen nothin yet". Grandchildren are six of the best things that ever happened to me. The feel of their tiny arms around your neck can put you in another world. I don't know of a single thing in life to compare it.
