Sam, who graduated from high school in June, is working as an electrician's apprentice. He started talking months ago about a career as an electrician. This evening he shared with us over dinner how exciting it has been to learn so much since he started working. He now truly knows this is what he wants to do and is making plans to get the training and experience he needs to make it happen and eventually be a master electrician and contractor. Way to go, Sam!!!
Ben, after three majors in three years of college, begins his new job at Blue Cross Blue Shield on Monday. He is eager to get working - I think he has truly grown weary of just "hanging out" and being a broke student all the time. He is very motivated to get moving and start making some money so he and Sam can get their own place. Way to go, Ben!!!
Bonnie is truly on her own now. Her divorce was final a couple of weeks ago. She and the kids are all settled in their new apartment and she's gotten them started on a new school year. She is a very strong person and a great little mother and I know they are going to do just fine. Way to go, Bonnie!!!
I'm thankful for my children, just as I have been at every stage of their lives. They are truly a blessing to me!
If your kids are near to you today, give them an extra hug. If they are not, say an extra prayer for them and pick up the phone and call to let them know you love 'em.
