But to get back to my dad, both boys whenever they would see him would break out these beautiful smiles that just seemed to dazzle him. I think it was seeing such unconditional love from such little ones. And the older kids loved sitting with him at the computer playing solitaire. That was something we would do with him as kids, of course, that was with an actual deck of cards. I am glad to see him have this to do with the kids.
Max fell into it with my father in law this summer so I think he was excited that my dad would do it with him too.
It was a real gift that the kids gave him, smiles and time. And it was nice to see him give back to them with smiles of his own and time.
The best gifts really are free.
