Everything and Nothing

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Interesting in that there is nothing going on in my life, yet I stand on a tipping point where everything is about to change and I don't really know how.

Everything - in that within the next couple of days, I will - to the degree that someone who has never fathered child can - become a grandfather. I have to say that I have never been quite so touched by anything as hearing someone say "Oh, Ed is your father in law, no matter what...are you crazy?". It's another reminder that the families we make are the families that matter. Even if they don't end up the way we originally planned, they last forever. Jesse and James, Ashley and Kieran; these are my children and I see myself in them all the time, sometimes in ways I never would have expected. Strangely I only see the best of me in them, and I am thankful for that. I am not the best person in so many ways and it amazes me how great my kids are. If they can be eight times the person I have been...let's see...split by four...They will be twice the person I was, and they deserve nothing less.

Nothing - I had a whole nothing thing planned. but it mostly involved the amount of time I have been spending playing Pirates of the Caribbean Online, which is the least sucky MMPORPG I have ever played. So...I am thinking I will skip that ...

You will make an awesome grandpa. I will buy you a pipe and slippers....oh and you will need a rocking chair for the front porch.

Seriously though, congratulations...being a grandparent is pretty neat.

Wow, that would be really freaky if Ashley gave birth today and her son shared a birthday with Dan...
