He took her tiny hand in his big paw and I lost my heart

Click on this link to read my latest essay about my husband, the gentle giant who has made a wonderful and positive impact on nine children ages 5-23.

Ashley was our first grandchild, the practice kid, so to speak. She and Paw-Paw had such a bond. He'd tickle her and she'd say STOP and run away. Then he'd call her back, and she'd go right back for more. I'd say, "Why do you keep going back if you want him to stop?"

She'd say, "Because he's the most fun big kid I know."

She called one day when she was about three and asked me to tell him her nose had a headache (cold) and to let him know she couldn't come over to play with him that day, becuase she just knew he'd miss her. Life sure has sped by.

I would SO appreciate it if you could leave a comment on the Sasee site. I would like to surprise
Paw-Paw with the comments. Thank you all so much.

Big paws and little girls hearts are generally a wonderful combination.
