I’ve Been Thinking — Thursday, February 6, 2020

We have been going to our oldest grandson and our oldest granddaughter’s basketball games

As I sat there Tuesday afternoon and way into the evening

I marveled at how amazing these young people are (not just my grandchildren, but all the kids out on the court—all of them)

It’s a very special time, for each young man and young woman.  They are being gifted with teachers, coaches, plus parents and grandparents who believe in them.

Not only believe in them but are willing to help the young adult stretch and experience and sometimes to pick them up so they can start all over again.

The message to each young mind is: “You can Become.  You can mold yourself into whatever you want to be and you can do whatever you want to do”.

Here are the tools. Even horrible situations of misery — have adults close by who care about the student.

Once we leave the nest, those days are over.  Sure there will be special people who come along for a spell…echoing the voice and lessons from that growing time of the past.

There will be experiences which lift us up interweaving spells of joy and tears

Never again will we ever get to experience that special time of support we get before we become full-fledged adults.

Once we are adults we figure out…adulting is hard.  Even though, we strain and strive for it all through our high school years.

From my world to your heart,
