This weekend gave me a chance to be convinced all over again how wonderful my kids are. We spent Saturday afternoon together, going out to lunch for Julia's 21st birthday (my baby!) and hanging around engrossed in good conversation, always a family talent. They have overcome many challenges over the past several years, and I've had reason to be very impressed by the adults they've become. That hasn't stopped. I respect them, appreciate their love, and want the very best for them always. (It should be noted that these sentiments apply fully to my dear daughter-in-law Tracy, whose presence in Steve's life is living evidence that God answers parents' prayers.)
Monday is the beginning of the second two-week Executive Program. I'll be moving into the Leadership Center - known to the cognoscenti as the 'Velvet Prison'. Yes, it's comfortable, but after the end of the last two week session, I'd practically forgotten the way back to my apartment. It was 64 degrees here today, so I hereby resolve to poke my nose outdoors regularly.
Thanks for being there.
