We stopped by The Home Depot for some flooring materials this afternoon. As we headed towards checkout, I chuckled with delight at how she was skipping though a hardware store. She saw me enjoying it-
Her – “Papa told me to never stop skipping (as I grow up).”
Me – “Why do you think?”
Her – “Because he likes it.”
Me – “Why do you think he likes it?”
Her – “Because I’m happy.”
Indeed. What could give a great grandpa more delight than seeing his granddaughter expressing her happiness? And what better advice could a great grandpa give than to keep making happiness a priority as she grows up? It obviously stuck with her.
