One of the fondest memories I have of my dad was at a family party. Our family arrived early and were settled in with our newborn baby. My parents arrived and he beelined directly for his grand daughter, ready to settle her in his arms. I think he may have said hello to me, but he clearly wanted to spend time with his granddaughter.
That’s pretty much where he stayed for the duration of the party – both of them perfectly content in each others company.
He has a new grandson again and seeing him with my nephew brings back all of those wonderful memories. The joy he has for his grandkids are reflected in their hearts and shared through his calm demeanor & his playful, nostalgic Filipino lullabies. They love him beyond words and are so blessed to have him.
This photo in the home captures the essence of that feeling. In this moment, this sweet baby in his arms is all that matters. I love when a photo captures a story so beautifully.
