My Twitter, Blogger, Facebooker, Texter friend Feather, yes it's her real name, started the Woo to the Hoo craze! So, please join me, click on her name and give your own Woo to the Hoo to someone/something deserving....all the cool kids are doing it!
My Grandpa!!! My sister, Sheli, did a wonderful tribute to our Grandmother yesterday. If you haven't read it, you should, but make sure you have kleenex or a sleeve...you'll need it. So..I thought I would give my Woo to the Hoo button to my Papa for taking care of our Grandma.
Ray, aka Papa, is kind, gentle, patient (although that is being tested these days), hard working, loving, heart of gold, honest, positive...I could go on and on. He taught me (all of us) to have love in our hearts for all, he taught us to pray and to have faith in God, to work hard, be responsible for your actions and always be honest and kind and "don't sweat the small stuff". Every day is a beautiful day to Papa and he always tells us (when we are on the phone with him) that we are "lookin' good"! And there's nothin' better than getting a Papa pat on the back....he pats your back and says "I appreciate you dear"...sigh...I love him.
I (we) all love him so much for who he is and for how he is taking care of our Grandma, aka GiGi, Granny. Their life together is a TRUE love story from beginning to end. Grandma has dementia and is not doing so well these days. She still has spunk and we can still make her giggle (which I love!) and she has so much love for her family! And, the most beautiful blue eyes you've ever seen!
Ok, back to Papa...he has given Grandma the best care. It is clear how deep their love is when he looks at her. He still tells her she's beautiful, tells her he loves her all the time, hugs, pats, opens doors, helps her eat and so many other personal things.
So, Woo to the Hoo to Papa for his loving care!!!
Love you, Papa!!!
