MY GRANDPAMany of us unfortunately were born after our ownGrandpas had passed on and never had the opportunityto enjoy moments like this. I hope this will again confirmthat the most important information in your life won't comefrom a teacher, the library or the Internet. It comes from amentor and always on a very personal level.
My long-passed grandfather's birthday is coming up andfor me it is a time to reminisce. We used to take long walksand drives together. He would make special trips to pickme up so I could spend weekends with him.
I was young when he died. If he were living today andsharing his pearls of wisdom, I'd be a better man.
The one I remember best came from him when I wasonly 12.
We were sitting in a park, watching children with theirmothers enjoying a beautiful spring day. He told me thatone day, I'd find a woman and start my own family. Thencame the jewel in the crown of grandfatherly advice whenhe said, "And be sure you marry a woman with smallhands.""Why should I do that, Grandpa?" I asked."It makes your pecker look bigger."
It kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?
