Spirited Granddad – and now it begins… Little did I know when my younger daughter and son-in-law were married on the 4th of July, 2010 that I had waited my whole life to become a granddad.
On September 8, 2011, Beckett was born. It was like a whole new emotional area of my heart was born that same day too.
As I write this, he is 4 years old and we’re great buddies. I have chronicled much of his life on LessonsFromMyGrandson.com so I won’t do that here. But what he has stirred in me has energized me to reach out to other men “of a certain age” to share ideas, stories, and life experiences.
I grew up with an “Uncle Jack” being mentioned by my parents. Uncle Jack was my Dad’s mother’s brother. But I never knew Uncle Jack. I knew what he looked like because I have photographs. I know some of his history in theater because I have some of the books he wrote. But I never heard his voice, saw him in action, learned what a loving, caring guy he must have been.
So part of the mission of this new site is to encourage Spirited Granddads to capture lots of video and get IN them as well. We owe it to generations that follow us – they want to know what we sound like, how we loved them, how we cared for them, what we looked like while holding, kissing, playing with them.
More to follow. I invite you to join me… either as a Spirited Granddad or as an expert who can help this assembled crowd.
