Deja-vu From Behind the Fence - Livin' the Good Life

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Yesterday, I was out in the backyard pruning and generally cleaning up winter debrie, when I heard something that caused me deja vu. I heard Ollie singing from behind the fence in his yard where he was evidently helping his papa with yard work. A very loud, remarkably on-key voice was belting out "Jingle Bells" over and over. Damian used to do that! Ollie sounded so much like his papa at that age that I just laughed out loud! Damian's spontaneous singing was one of the most endearing things about him when he was little. His singing was completely unselfconscious and spirited, and I TREASURED that about him. And so all these years later hearing Ollie doing the same thing just made my heart melt.

Those are some of the best moments…seeing the past in our grandchildren. I still remember Damian's happy voice on your tapes from back in the day.
