This is a short story written by a grandson
who had a very special relationship with his Grandpa. Many of us unfortunately
were born after our own Grandpas
had passed on and never had the opportunity to enjoy moments like this.
The grandson writes...
I hope this will again confirm that the most important information in
your life won't come from a teacher, the library or the Internet. It
comes from a mentor, and always on a very personal level.
My long-passed grandfather's birthday is coming up and for me it is a
time to reminisce. We used to take long walks and drives together. He
would make special trips to pick me up so I could spend weekends with
I was young when he died. If he were living today and sharing his pearls
of wisdom, I'd be a better man. Those gems were all well and good, but
the one I remember best came from him when I was only 12.
We were sitting in a park, watching children with their mothers enjoying
a beautiful spring day. He told me that one day, I'd find a woman and
start my own family. Then came the jewel in the crown of grandfatherly
advice when he said, "And be sure you marry a woman with small hands."
"Why should I do that, Grandpa?" I asked.
"It makes your pecker look bigger."
It kinda brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?
