Proud of my Kids
Melissa and her family thanked Mom with hugs and gifts. She is raising two children while living with MS, so far under control, she is strict with diet and meds. She leads singing at her new church plant and earned an interior design degree she uses as often as she can.
Matthew Emailed greetings from Scotland, he has been touring Europe for the last month and spending money faster than he had hoped. He got a taste for travel in the Marines and I think this will help him return to finish his college degree and find something he enjoys doing.
Brian called from NYC. His Drama degree was worthwhile but he recently decided to pursue his other passion and has been accepted into Parsons School of Design. He has always had incredible artistic and creative ideas and this will give him an outlet for this dream, and he can keep working and living in the City that never sleeps.
I want my kids to find themselves and their lives to have joy, love, meaning and purpose. They all love God but are survivors of the pastors kid syndrome and are all finding their own expressions of faith, for which I am thankful.
