llama llama gram and grandpa

I learned a few weeks ago that my son Jonathan is planning to marry a lovely young woman named Lauren next May. They are both hoping that Covid will be under control by then so that they can have a traditional wedding with lots of friends and family in attendance. I remember hoping since Jay was a boy that he would be wiser than I was and wait till he was at least thirty to choose a bride. He turned thirty last April so I got my wish.

I have never gotten yet to be a grandpa though I have enjoyed others grandchildren, seeing their pictures and hearing their grandparents share stories about them. My traveling life has been on hold this past year so happily I have gotten to spend more time with my lovely wife Linda than I have the past nine years in total. I expect to be back on the road working before the year is out.

I guess for the last ten years I figured that I would never get to be a hands on grandpa or even much of one at all. I hope to work another five years on the road, but I figure, if I live, that I will settle down with my wife somewhere after that and spend a little more time in the same location.

In the poem, A Visit From Saint Nicholas, the children are said to have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. Well, I find of late that I have had a few visions of grand children dancing in my head and heart.

Don’t get me wrong I don’t want to raise any more children or tell my son and his wife how to raise theirs but I would not mind at all getting to spoil a little guy or girl in the not too distant future if that is in the cards for me.

I have learned as I say often to be “glad and grateful that everything that I could ever want is already mine and coming to me at just the right time and in just the right way from my loving and infinite source.”

As a younger man I used to don a Santa suit and entertain from time to time. Some years ago I put away my Santa outfit thinking that and my clown period were over for me. But if the right young man or woman comes along in the next few years I might just have to suit up again. I understand grandmas and grandpas can go quite ga ga over their grand babies. I can see myself enjoying doing that a bit too.

Your friend and fellow traveler,
