Great Grandpa

On Sunday we attended a baby blessing for our newest niece, Katherine. While we were there Laura and I were sitting next to my grandfather. I was very interested to watch as Enoch suddenly decided to climb over to his great grandpa rather than sitting with Laura. I was fascinated to see the way Enoch looked at Grandpa as if he knew him considering that at Enoch’s age he couldn’t possibly remember the few times he has seen Grandpa before. The way he played with Grandpa left me with the impression that Enoch was trying to take this opportunity while he could get it, as if he knew that such chances might be limited since Grandpa is already in his mid 80’s. It was very tender to watch both Enoch and Grandpa for those few minutes together.
