Today was my grandfather’s birthday. I have written about my grandpa before, and mentioned that he passed away when I was just five years old. My grandpa is still a huge influence in my life, and I always stop to think about what he would say to me in big life decisions if he were here. Today is a special day that my mom and I bond over each year, and a time to remember what a special man that my grandpa was.
We used to release a balloon for my grandpa each year when I was younger, but as I got older, this became more of a day for reflection than for doing something to signify the day. I think I prefer to just remember my grandpa in my own way, not celebrate with everyone else.
