Happy Birthday Granddad

Today would've been my Granddad's 75th birthday but unfortunatly he passed away a few years ago from prostate cancer a shock to every one. It felt strange to be in a resturaunt celebrating my Mum's, Auntie Lea's and a family friend's birthday with out him there yes we had fun ( who wouldn't it was Sizzlers for Godness Sakes!) but I'm sure my Mum and Grandma kept thinking about him as did I.

My Granddad died when I was about 10 we had recently moved up here and we know now that it was a 'god thing' ( I like the way it sounds) that my Dad was offered the job around the time my Grandad was dignosed. My Mum helps my Grandma do things that would be too hard/confusing for her to do alone and my Dad helps her with the gardening/pruning ect and keeping of her house. We all help out though at times it is hard to arrange things around our life style but we do what we can to help her out. We were all close to my Granddad (our family proboly the closest seeing as my Dad didn't have any family over here they were always called if we needed help ie looking after me and my sisters ect) and when he died no matter how much we had prepared for it still came as a shock to us and his funeral was well attended ( he was the head of the Baptist union before he was dignosed with cancer) it was a sad time and our house looked and smelt like a flower shop!

so HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDDAD!

You haven't lived till you've . . . cried your self to sleep.
You haven't lived till you've . . . had a feline/canine friend lick your tears when you know they like the taste of the salt but you still think they are comorting you.
You haven't lived till you've . . . laughed so hard that your stomach hurts for days.
You haven't lived till you've . . . walked home in the rain and gotten drenched but you didn't care as it was an adventure.
You haven't lived till you've . . . stayed up half the night talking to a close friend about life.
You haven't lived till you've . . . called up a friend in tears and it didn't matter how far away you were from each other.
You haven't lived till you've . . . made a mess of a fairly simple cooking recipe.
You haven't lived till you've . . . had to choose a new pet out of a range of animals ie cats , dogs ect.
You haven't lived till you've . . . vistited an animal shelter to pick out a new friend and know they were perfect in every way.
You haven't lived till you've . . . cried sooo hard because you lost your pet and no matter what you say they weren't just an animal and never will be they were a friend and family member.
You haven't lived till you've . . .
