{this memory} 94

This is the story behind last Monday's {this moment}.

Takes my breath away. Just thinking about it will bring a tear to my eye. Sometimes I feel like my heart is going to explode - it's so filled with love. What love? Well, the love this grandfather (larger hand) hand feels for his grandson (smaller hand).

I cannot look at this image without it all flooding back. What will his life hold? How much of it will I get to witness? Can I keep him safe until I go? Will I have the chance to teach him what makes a life truly fulfilling and what is really important? I want to wrap him forever in my arms and surround him with boundless love.

I am a fortunate man. Life's been good to me so far.
