claiming our daze and our days on the prairie
with humble joy, we celebrate another year of my grandfather’s life. i call him opa…my kids call him opi. he is an incredible wise man. with his name being abram, he has quotes that he calls “marbas.” my dad remembered one of his today: “i may be concerned, but i am not worried.” there are so many more, scripture intertwined with life moments mixed with longings…true wisdom, indeed.
you know the saying that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree? well, he is a tree i am glad to fall from. call me apple, please.
and with teary eyes and a swirling heart, i go to bed tonight with the gift of knowing that each of my children has been held by him.
hapy birthday, opa.
happy birthday, opi.
here’s to 88 years lived well.
