Spreading their Wings
There is nothing so satisfying to me as a mother then to see my children spread their wings and fly. I've seen a level of maturity in my children lately that encourages me.
♥ Emily is excited for high school. She starts on Monday and is determined to do well. She is going into a school with almost 3,500 students and yet, is looking forward to it. I've watched her become very independent lately.
♥ Stephen, is tutoring this year at the college and is doing fantastic. I love seeing how is passion for social justice matches his gift of mercy. He is learning much, taking responsibility, and maturing.
♥ Nathan is growing into a man. His biggest complaint is the lack of hours he is getting at the store he works at and would love to find a job that would allow him to work full-time. I've seen him grow in the way he handles stress and disappointment. This week, he handled a situation that involved giving CPR to a friend who didn't make it in a very mature manner.
I love my children and am enjoying the process of watching them grow into responsible, caring adults. It makes me feel that despite our weaknesses (and there are many), Dan & I have done something right. I know that is only by the grace of God!
