Grandpa's Heart

The only way to read my stories is to know that they come from my "Grandpa's Heart." I am blessed beyond measure by my children and grandchildren.

Many of my stories have, at the very heart of them, interactions that occurred between my grandchildren and myself. It is amazing just how many life applications stem from something that they have taught me during play.

If someone tells you "Let me tell you about my grandchildren," you might as well settle in for the stories. It's not a quick, one-liner - they never are.

I did not know that I could love all of these little ones as much as I do. In many ways, it is a consuming presence deep in my soul. From the phrase "I love you to pieces" comes a bond that is stronger than I could have ever imagined. All of my grandchildren hear this phrase from me on a regular basis. Usually the first words I speak to them when I see them, and the last words as they leave - it has become our 'mantra.'

So, read my stories, and you can bet that the ones that are about children - bear some portion in fact, either from my children or my grandchildren. What a blessing to have them in my life.
