Grandpa/Papi Harold

 

Even though I grew up without parents I never felt a missing void. I didn't know any different. This great grandfather who helped raise me with three other grandparents acted as my most influential father figure. My intrinsic motivation was truly shaped by his work ethic, drive, punctuality and determination. I was lucky to have him. He didn't miss anything that I did. Most of what I did was always to make him proud! I know he was as he bragged about me all the time. Men don't... stand a chance with me because the constant attention he gave me. He would drop anything he was doing just to do what I wanted. He stopped watching football games to play games with me before DVR times and always gave into putting the Christmas tree up early when I begged. Friday night traditions watching TGIF and eating chocolate ice cream with grandpas drink are some of my fondest memories. Many of my young travels happened with him. I knew every capital of every state so young because of all our car games during these travels. Never did he judge me, my mistakes, friends, or guys I dated. (At least not to me). He opened his home to everyone. My friends were always his grandchildren and always made sure everyone ate when they stopped in. My first dog that I wanted for so many years happened because he and I just stopped and got one against others wishes This was only the beginning of my crazy love for dogs. Even if he did steal her from me later because he loved her so lol. I've tried to think of words to justify how I feel or my thoughts and nothing seems to do justice. The world was a better place with him in it. I'm so thankful for him and all he did for not only me but everyone he came into contact with. I'm glad my children got to know him even if the experiences were much different and even happier that he was there and involved through me having them all. Thank goodness that all the stars aligned Tuesday night with an amazing coworker taking my last therapy session and all the kids sports getting cancelled to make the trip possible to see him one last time. It feels good that I had that moment and that he woke up at the end to say bye
