He was a little boy who knew that he wanted to be just like him…
It was a summer day when his daddy was working on grandpa’s swimming pool. The water had been drained and his daddy was working inside. He sat on the edge nearby, leaning over and watching everything his daddy was doing.
Grandpa walked up and said, “You should sit over here where it’s safe.” He gave his suggestion some thought and then said, “I can’t. I need to watch everything my daddy does so that I can help him when he gets old.”
This is one of my favorite photos of the two of them. I can’t help but smile every time I see it. We’ve learned a lot along our journey, like how they watch everything we do.
He’s a grown man now and he still wants to be just like him.
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
I remember this well, thanks for sharing.
