I love seeing three generations of a family being together. Here Will, his dad, and son Forest, all put in equal effort to set up this Christmas gift. Moments like this are special to me. In my own family, my grandparents lived with my parents, siblings and me, so such moments did not hold the same preciousness. As a child you take for granted that you are living with these grandparents who love you..and there isn’t the excitement then of the grandparent visit. I wish I could tell my grandparents now that I loved them everyday and taking them for granted was just an inevitable downside of living together. Perhaps the moments of three generations together giving me joy is in part from an imprinted “homey” feeling it evokes.
