Quote of the Day: A grandchild fills a space in your heart that you never knew was empty. ~ Me
A Letter To David Keith Wiggins (my grandson) born on August 8, 2012
By the time you read this you will probably be a big boy.
I know you will be kind, funny, wise, sensitive, interesting, and fun! Your parents are all of these things, and much more. I know you will be strong and a wonderful hugger. Your father was and still is. I wish you happy, happy, days! You will have some bad days, yes. They are important or you could not appreciate the good ones. There will be disappointments; I know you will be able to handle them. I like to say, "Life is 10% of what happens and 90% how you handle it. " I pray you learn about humility and embrace it. Please always welcome strangers, and always, always, be kind. I hope you learn that honesty is the best policy, and that doing a hard days work in service to God will always make you feel a kind of "good tired." Be a loyal friend, one people can count on and trust. Help to make the world around you a better place to live in. Please learn about Jesus, He really works, trust me. You have such a wonderful mother and father. They will teach you all the good things in life. Remember how to play, for you need to enjoy life. I may never see you, but I love you already. You will live in my heart all of my days.
Your grandfather (Babu) in Africa
