Thankful Thursday

Today I give thanks for having had this wonderful, tough-son-of-a-gun, kind-hearted man as my grandpa.

September 3, 1920 - November 3, 2009 Stanley Lenox

Their heaven on earth was the Steen Mountains, where this picture was taken. I'd like to think that they are happily enjoying the view, together again.

My last grandparent is gone. It's been a sad, and rather sleepless, week, as I can't help but contemplate that fact. I am who I am today in a large part because of my grandparents. I'm forever grateful for all they gave me, including their time and their unconditional love.


  1. So sorry for your loss--he sounds like a wonderful man. Thank you for sharing your grief and if it helps, please know there's a (slightly strange) girl in California thinking of you.

  2. Thanks Shannon - appreciate the thoughts!

  3. Thinking of you in Mississippi too :-(
