IF:Similar (aka Bird, Home)
My grandfather was one of my very favorite people.
He was very proud of all of his grandchildren and wore our names on his favorite tie like shiny medals. And he was always talking about the bluebird of happiness... He taught me to laugh even when the going gets tough and to enjoy life...even when your wife is dying with Alzheimer's and your bones are a'creakin'. I think of him around the holidays...dressing up as Santa and the smell of "thanks, I needed that" after shave. Love. Family. We're carrying on the loud, laughing Christmas tradition in this house, tweet, tweet.
This is a post for Illustration Friday..."Similar".
