taking in the moment

we just got back from a week up north with my wonderful parents and grandparents. who are all amazing.

i was privileged to spend a lot of quality time with my grandpa. who we don't see often. my grandpa has faced the loss of his only son [my uncle] this february. and his wife's memory. [my grandma] recently being diagnosed with a fast-acting-dementia. yet. he is still thankful. he is a great listener. very wise. a great teacher. a great observer. and a complete joy to be with. he never complained. he was open and honest. but focused mostly on the good times. he loved to share funny stories. just the way he lives his life has recently affected me to my core. my grandpa got the memo that we only live once. he is 100% present. i'm grateful for that.

i hope to become a person who is noticed for the unspoken things i do, like my grandpa.

in honor of my uncle who recently moved to heaven and in honor of my grandpa and grandma. tonight i took in all that was in front of me. because you remind me to. just by being you.

thank you.
