Some people have turkey dinner or chocolate chip cookies, neither of which taste as good as when they are made with love, never mind the dry or burnt bits. Others have bagels and cream cheese or Costco hot dogs, cheap dates that are more valuable than any other. Others even still have the smell of a musty, well-worn but classic and authentic cologne.
For me, it is the singing the birthday song over the phone. For me, it is the always standing on the porch, waiting for the drive off so the last image you have is of them smiling and waving, is of love.
Thank you Grandparents. I love you always.
