Lately, I've been feeling really happy & sad at the same time. Happy that he was able to take part in so many milestones in my life, like walking me down the aisle and dancing with me on my wedding day, 6 1/2 years ago. He has also been such a wonderful grandfather to both of my boys and they are sooo blessed to know him and have him in their lives. I never got to know any of my grandfathers or even my paternal grandmother; so, having him around my boys means the world to me.
At the same time, I am a little saddened to think about the future and how many MORE memories I would like to have with him. Does this make me selfish? I hope not. Because even though he is with us right now, I can't fathom the thought of not having him in our lives anymore. The thought of it makes my heart feel broken. Anyway, I will stop at that. Don't forget to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you...
