Awake at 1 am

27 Oct

I am not a night owl, but as luck would have it I have a painful absessed tooth tonight. Tonight of all nights is painful for it was at exactly this time and date last year that my grandpa left this earth for his final home in Heaven.
Grandpa was a super special guy. He could make anyone laugh. He loved to sing songs like “Big Bad John” and “Tennessee Wig Walk”. He was the best story teller ever. He loved his family dearly and was happiest when were all in one room even though a few of us didn’t get along! Lol! He was born into a very poor family so he wasted nothing and was often teased for being cheap. In fact, his last few days I heard him say that the birds were calling him “cheap, cheap, cheap” a few times. He was a great Christian! He loved the Lord and loved to talk about him.
I was trying to figure out a way to honor his life today. So absessed tooth or not, I will congregate with my family at my nephews football game. Go saints! First though I’ll tell someone about Jesus. I always said grandpa’s motto was God and family!
So this day is for grandpa! I love you, grandpa, and I miss you sooooooo much! I thank God for Heaven and the opportunity to see you again. As crazy as this world is looking it won’t be long!
