When her grandfather called her, Megan Elizabeth was surprised. At the same time, she understood he was sad and truly wanted to spend some time together. Her 92-year-old grandfather's health is declining, and every memory they have together is priceless.
So, she didn't hesitate when he asked her to get some tasty food and come watch a mystery show together.
The loving grandfather even prepared the water she would need if she got thirsty, made the bed the same way she remembered, and found one of her favorite dolls.
What are the details?
"My 92-year-old grandpa called me crying the other day saying he feels lonely and texted me inviting me over for a sleepover," Megan wrote on social media about the touching time when her grandfather reached out to her, according to Sunnyskyz.
"Hi Megan, it's grandpa. Would you like to come over for a sleepover? I haven't been feeling well, and I miss you. We can order food and then watch a mystery show," the grandfather texted her.
As his health has constantly been declining during the past few years, Megan didn't think twice about going to see him and spending quality time together.
And then the grandfather added, on a funny note, "Could you pick up applesauce? The cinnamon kind. If you go somewhere with mashed potatoes, I'd like that because I have no teeth and can only eat soft things. I love you."
As soon as Megan wrote back, "Okay, I'll see you soon," his sense of humor got through once again as he replied, "Thank you, you are my favorite granddaughter (she is the only one)."
And then, another tasty ingredient for their evening together came up. "Could you bring me strawberry ice cream too?" he asked.
So, Megan set to it and arrived at the door with "mashed potatoes from KFC, applesauce and ice cream, and we watched his favorite mystery show."
The grandfather looked content and pleased that she was there, and their evening was filled with fun times and so much love.
The other little things he did for her brought Megan close to tears.
"He made sure I had water for bed and showed me that he made my bed the way he used to make it when I was little with my favorite doll from grandma," Megan said.
The most touching moment was when he came back as she was going to sleep to hand Megan a flashlight "in case she got scared" of the dark.
"Staying here brings back such good memories from my childhood. I love my grandpa so much," the granddaughter concluded, showing just how much it matters to bond with your grandparents.
They may only be here for a short while, but their presence adds so much meaning and selfless love that you can't help beaming for every little thing that reminds you of their care and devotion. Snuggle, hug them, and make them smile for as long as you can.
