His good old days

My two favorite things Grampie's said to me in the last two days,
"You finally got smart, didn't you?"
"It must be wonderful to be you."

I have
it is.
Living with this man is helping Beve and me become the best versions of ourselves.
We have no choice. He looks at his situation and can laugh at it and if he can do that, I sure must do the same. He thanks us for what we do for him, eats what we put in front of him, and bears what we do to him with grace in greater weakness than he ever imagined.

So I have gotten smart: smart enough to know that even when the good is rough (and believe me, some moments are exceedingly rough) we're exactly where we should be. God is glorified in this.
And it's wonderful to have the privilege of these days, as up and down and crazy as they are.
These are Grampie's good old days, after all. And we're just along for the ride.

That is SO wonderful! I love what he said...and I love the picture of his smile...and you too, of course! But his smile says it all. You have truly done the right thing, even when the days are rough. God is with you...He will be your strength in every way.

Praying for you daily!
