Morgen Gave Me A Hug

Morgen gave me a hug. It was a simple act. It only took a moment.

I was sitting in a devotional at church tonight when my brother’s grandson, Morgen, walked by me. He stopped, turned around, and walked over to me. With a big smile on his face he just reached out and hugged my neck. He didn’t say a word. He just gave me a hug and walked away.

I was touched. Maybe he sensed I needed a little hug. Maybe he was just being nice to Pappy’s brother. Regardless of the reason, I needed and enjoyed that hug.

I can’t help but remember when my own little men would do the say thing: just give me hug without word or warning.

I miss those hugs.

Amazing Things Over The Years

Throughout the years, I have marveled at the ingenuity and imaginations of my sons. These boys have never ceased to amaze me by the things they have said and done. Here are some things I thought I would share.

No sleep before moving a cemetery.
A knife and an electrical outlet.
Catching fish while breaking all the fishing rules.
Burning marshmallows to flannel shirts
Kitty Cat football
Wrestling in the living room
Singing contests won
Football practices and games played (wins or losses doesn’t matter)
Wisdom beyond your years
Laughter above measure
Long walks and equally long talks
Shooting the Clicker
Semi-automatic pistols
Beautiful wives (physically, emotionally, spiritually)
Driving lessons
Car accidents
Moon Pie bribes to Police Officers
Driving without headlights and getting caught

I guess all I am trying to say is, I love you guys…a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.
