Grandpa, The Forest, and Sunshine

Hi dear ones. My heart is sad today because my Grandpa had a massive stroke and is not expected to recover. He has lost the use of his left side and does not recognize anyone.

I’m glad I promised you forest pictures today because Grandpa has always loved being outside, exploring, canoeing, and farming. He would like these.

Love you all and wish you a most beautiful weekend with people you love.
