It’s unusual to see Grandpa on a horse. Since his heart attack in 98, he’s hadn’t been on a horse either. No particular reason. Or, just maybe, it wasn’t as important as the other things in life. When a reality of this nature hits, sometimes, it throws you in to a tail spin. The whole episode had a spiraling effect on both of us. It was as though, it knocked the breath out of us. It took over a decade to get back on track. Thankfully, it was a new turn of events that brought us out of the slump we were in. Our Grand daughter. Both of her parents, have had troubled lives. And, there’s no need to go in to the details. But, we have custody of her now.
It’ll be 7 years this month. She’s kept both of us going. We’ve rebuilt our lives around her. Strangely enough, the very month we gained custody of her, Ron retired from his job on a full pension. She wasn’t going to have to worry about whether she was going to be taken care of again. From that day forward, it’s been a blast. Oh, there’s been plenty of ups and downs, but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I don’t thank “God” enough, for allowing us to be the guardians in her life. It’s moments like this, I know why we’re here.
