Head over to Tara's TMI to post your own Flashback Fridays....
at my wedding
These two people right here mean the absolute universe to me. My grandfather is a retired police officer of the Honolulu Police Department, and my grandmother is a retired stay at home mother of 5.
My grandmother is celebrating her birthday soon in April and I want to share a moment that took my breathe away and a unexpected tear showed up just by watching them together.
Last year on her birthday they had come home to Hawaii for a visit.
(New/old home, San Francisco).
While her clan sang Happy Birthday she stared at her cake and enjoying that glow in her eyes being around her husband, children, grand children and yes...GREAT grandchildren.
My grandfather stood behind her. Hands on her shoulders.
And in the middle of the song, he gently leaned to her head and kissed her.
she smiled in that way of contentment because of it and patted his hand and held it
It was very sweet watching that exchange....
It felt like it was only the two of them in the room.
I'm not sure what caught me off guard emotionally. Maybe because when I am around them they are everything I hope for in life.
They are LOVE.
They are DEVOTION
They are LAUGHTER
They are the center of our FAMILY
Maybe one day...I can sit down and write the love story that is them.
