Friday Flash 55.....
Sitting alone in a room lit only by Old Tannenbaum.
My grandmother sat...Unmoving.
With watery eyes and streaming tears, she wouldn't or couldn't speak.
"Grandma...Are you OK"?
Just then, my grandfather beckoned me to the kitchen.
'Son...Leave her be'
"Whats wrong with her Grandpa"?
Someday you'll understand'!!!!
This scene actually happened to me about 50 years ago.
My Grandfather wasn't very 'book-smart', but this common/simple man was very wise!
As I now sit in front of my own lit tree...
Both my Grandparents are gone
My Mother is gone
My brother is gone
My daughter lives in The Czech Republic!!
And at age 60, his words are still ringing in my ears.
And you know what else?
I Finally Understand!!!!!
Next Friday is Christmas, so I think that we shall take a week off and return on Friday January 1st 2010. Enjoy the Holidays....And please remember....
Home is where the Heart is!
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55,
Please come tell The G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment...Then BOOK!
So from the most Jolly host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Holiday Week!!!
