Weekly Winners - Message for Grandpa
Not many this week.
We've brought my son to see his Grandpa several times in hospital in the last month and he's been okay with it so far. This past week, he was a bit reluctant because it's hard for him to see his Grandpa in this state. And to be honest, it's hard for all of us to see Dad this sick.
But on Friday, he wanted to see him, he missed him, and he knew that his Grandpa would be overjoyed to see him. And his Grandpa was. Over the moon.
My boy was so glad that he visited, even just to sit and smile at his Grandpa. It made both of them feel better.
My daughter, having just turned 4, has not done well at the hospital. She's scared, and it's only natural. She only likes seeing her Grandpa in the natural setting, at his home. So we don't bring her to the hospital anymore, but instead, she makes cards for him.
The one she made yesterday had the above photos in it, with the following message:
"Get better Gong-Gong" (Chinese for Grandpa). "I love you".
He couldn't say much, he was too breathless, but he did whisper that he couldn't believe what a big girl she looks in these shots. He kept opening up the card, closing it, opening it ... as if to memorize its contents. It made him smile.
Be sure to visit other winners, at the home of the lovely hostess with the mostest LOTUS.
