My grandfather is on the mend. Just a quick update to let you all know that we so appreciate all of your emails, comments and prayers about my grandfather. I think I responded to you all but if I missed any, I am sorry! It’s been a crazy busy couple months here between home projects and life in general. I read each and every comment so thank you again :). If you have been following along, you know my grandfather fell and has been experiencing some issues.  As for my grandfather, he is back! Well as back as he can get. He is walking all over the place with his cane, cleaning his stove and even spending time in his workshop in the backyard. My dad had to tell him to slow down though and pace himself. We certainly don’t want him to land back in bed for a few weeks.

my grandfather is back

My son got a lesson from my grandfather about good o’l fashion banking last week. One of the great generational lessons from my grandfather to his great grandson. My grandfather believes in going inside the bank and sitting with a person to do all his banking. My son is use to the “modern” age of banking where you don’t go inside at all. -ha. Needless to say, my son got an old school lesson about banking. Not a bad thing it just takes sooooo much longer. It was actually good for my son to see the inside of a bank and see that you can actually do banking with a person, not an ATM. I forget that my son’s generation is so modernized and high tech. It made me wonder if his kids and their kids will ever know certain things about life prior to electronics and the modern world of technology. One of the benefits of four generations under one roof, the kids learn lots that they normally wouldn’t have known anything about. Heading out in a bit to buy some concrete stain to spruce up our front foyer area. We installed new french doors and I can’t wait to share them with you!

    I am so thankful that your grandfather is feeling better and getting around. Thanks for the update. The lesson he gave your son is so valuable and on the money (no pun intended). I learned that same lesson from my husband and his grandmother. When doing business with people, be friendly and honest. You do get back what you give out. TFS. have a blessed day.

  2. Your grandfather is looking good and I am so thankful for that. Your son is a doll and I am sure he loves learning from his great grandfather. I love grandpa and enjoy all the stories you tell about him. Stay healthy grandpa you are loved more than you know by so many people you don’t even know.

    1. Awww thanks Beth! We are happy he is on the mend too. Hopefully he stays that way for another 10+ years! 🙂
