It has been awhile now and I have been going back over our last talk that night.
Grandpa had always been rather close with his words and stories; explanations had to be pulled out of him, except for those few times he was a little tipsy around a camp fire.
One topic in particular had been rather one sided and when I questioned him about it he only went on to another subject. At the time I thought I could have another time at it later. I finally got around to thinking about it as I sorted out the last several months.
"What are your plans for life?"
"What do you mean? You know I work downtown at the company."
"You have the ability to make a difference and you care.
You are bright and can see though walls when you try.
What are the plans for your life, not just the 8 hours of daylight during the day. What are your desires? What are your goals? What is your plan?" he asked.
I did not answer right away, knowing this was a question not to be answered out loud.
"If you want to help, tell them the answer and the time of day."
"You will know when the time is right. I have left instructions and a recommendation. Don't tell your mother, she may not approve."
"What are you talking about?"
He looked at me with that look. "Can you freshen my drink for me?"
I have thought long and hard about his question and the unanswered directions.
I believe all I have to do is throw up the leaves, they will know where to go.
It is morning and the answer is seven.
All showed up and helped us spread beauty bark and spruce up the yard. Thank you, great to have family. love grandpa
