“Grandchildren are treasures! Merry Christmas!” – Doc & Jeannette Meek

Tuesday, December 25, 2012. Today I am grateful for friends, spouses, significant others, children and grandchildren. And good good memories! – Doc Meek 

Here is a treasured letter I received from one of my grown sons (“All growed up”):

Dear Dad,

Christmas is here again [2012].
I am sitting here, alone yet surrounded, and I think I have some thoughts to pass on. Take them for what they are worth:
(1) Make a big deal about holidays & birthdays.
(2) Give children/grandchildren your unconditional love and support — and at least one big squeeze of a bear hug each time you first see each other.
(3) Play with your children and grandchildren when they are young, regardless of your differences with anyone.
(4) Sing to your children/grandchildren — [even if it’s torture to listen to you wreck perfectly good music]. 😮
(5) Share a laugh when kids make a mistake or spill something. I haven’t yet met anyone who hasn’t spilled something or made a mistake.
(6) Have patience. You will never look back on life and think you were too patient, but the opposite is not so true.
(7) Make your child’s favorite food, from scratch… no matter the inconvenience. Do it often!
(8) Create special family traditions that can be continued for generations, even if you have to be the first generation to do it.
One day all children will spend important moments without you, and he or she will look back and remember everything… and that will be all they have. I’m doing this today.
Your Son
Thank you, Son! You’ve made my day, in many more ways than one!

New Granddaughter! – Doc Meek

Thursday, November 3, 2011. Today I am grateful for newborns, the world over. They remind us of innocence, new beginnings and new hope!

In many ways babies (and children)  teach us more than we teach them, eh? 😮 ~ Doc Meek

Glad parents of new baby Serena


Dear Mom and Dad of Serena,

Way to go! A precious daughter of God has been created in mortal form and welcomed to earth courtesy of you two great people!
(Especially you, Mom, since you did most of the “heavy lifting,” eh?)
Thank you for the beautiful pictures of beautiful people, big and small.
Loving Kindness, Dad
