Monday's Musings: So Many Happys

Today, my family says goodbye to my grandfather.  He was 87 years old.  He was married to my grandmother for 66 years.  It is amazing to think of all the happys he had in life.  Many of them involved family vacations to Maine, when we would invade his house.  He made it a home for all of us.

I went back to my childhood summer vacation place this past August.  I hadn't seen him in 20 years.  He hadn't changed a bit.  Witty sense of humor, warm and inviting.  I am so happy I made that trip.  Happy that my kids and husband got the chance to meet such a great guy, such an inspirational couple.

Four girls used to invade his house.  Me and my sisters.  We grew up there each summer.  This page shows the next generation of girls.  Four of them again.

My daughter and nieces, all spread out in ages, yet bonded.  Look at those smiles.  Those moments, watching these girls is one of my happys.

I love that moment.  I can relate to what my grandfather must have felt all those times he saw the smiles of all of his girls, my sisters and my cousins.  I hope he holds onto those smiles as he looks down from heaven.
Rest in peace, gramps...
