|My Uncle and Evie|
“We will take him home and we will love him.”
And love him they did…and still do. We all do.
Two reasons…Love and courage.
It probably comes as no surprise that, when my own baby was born, I immediately drew strength from the example that my grandparents had given me…
We will take her home and we will love her.
At first I was disappointed to have been awakened. I was emotionally and physically exhausted. However, I couldn’t fall back asleep so I got up and went down the hall to an alcove set up for visiting and using the computer. I sat down and began to pray. I felt peace, I felt strength and I felt courage the longer I prayed.
Grandpa woke me up.
He’d wake us by tugging on our feet.
Today is Grandpa’s birthday, and while he’s celebrating it in Heaven with Jesus, we still celebrate it here on earth with the memories of such a strong and courageous man.
