If you ask his kids or grand kids, or anyone who knows him, you would end up with a long list of wisdom. He likes to talk and the words that come out of his 80 plus years of living are ones to be remembered. In fact he made a list once, filled with some of his favorite sayings gathered and used over a lifetime. Some he used more often than others. I blogged about it once a long time ago.
He did it again the other day. I heard about it from my dad. He added another bit of wisdom to the list. One I have been mulling over for days. I think he is on to something.
He said, “It is almost selfish to be thankful for everything because it makes me so happy.”
If you know him, I have to ask… doesn’t that sound like something he would say?
How cool would it be to have a statement like that “sound like something you would say.”
Yep, I wanna be like my Grandpa.
I think I will start by giving thanks for him!
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
