Stepdad's Thoughts

My thought and feelings.

Grandparents

My wife and I had a great phone call with my Grandparents last night. My Grandfather is 94 and my Grandmother is 80-something, no one really knows her age. We were on the phone for 1.5 hours, it seemed more like 10 minutes. My grandfather has requested a gathering of all his family for Christmas, actually the day after. We have never all been together at one time on Christmas; my dad, his two brothers and their extended families. So we will all me meeting on the 26th for a big dinner. I think a big reason he has asked for this gathering is he has started to think his time is near the end. Definitely not something I look forward to but he is the last of his siblings. He lost his brother in November. My grandfather was the oldest of I think 6 kids and is now also the last. I can’t imagine how that must feel.

I can’t wait, it will be a short visit but a momentous one for us.
